CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Jimmy Graham has an announcement. He's
not a basketball player anymore.
The way he played this weekend against Duke might have proven
Perhaps an overlooked storyline of Miami's 34-16 win over Duke
on Saturday was how Graham -- the 6-foot-7 former forward for the
Hurricanes' basketball team -- was relied upon at key times. He had
five catches for 73 yards, both season-highs by a wide margin, with
four of those catches coming in third-down situations.
Miami, which climbed two spots Sunday to No. 19 in the AP Top
25, scored on every one of those drives. Without Graham's catches,
that might not have happened.
