Counting on a big weekend from: Kenny Kadji. The 6-foot-11 sophomore has gone from disappointment at Florida (4.4 points per game in 34 games as a freshman) to a team leader at Miami (14.8 points per ACC game). With his ability to score from anywhere on the floor, Kadji is a matchup headache for everyone.
Number to know: 7.3. The number of 3-pointers per game in conference play by the Hurricanes. Only Duke (8.5) averaged more.
Hotlanta or Notlanta?: Hot. The matchups, even with Florida State and Duke potentially in back-to-back days, break well for the Hurricanes, who effectively decided the ACC regular-season race with their 78-74 win at Duke on Feb. 5. The Canes have the firepower, and depth, to make a run.
