Canes to wear 1960s retro uniforms against Notre Dame

  The Hurricanes plan to reveal new throwback uniforms against Notre Dame Thursday.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami will unveil its 2017 Hardwood Classics  on Thursday, Jan. 12 against No. 20 Notre Dame.

The cream uniforms feature orange numbering and vertical Miami lettering flanked by green trim, while a retro Sebastian the Ibis logo is displayed on the short.

The throwbacks replicate those worn in the final three seasons before the program was disbanded from 1971-1985. These uniforms were worn by Hurricane greats such as All-American Don Curnutt and 1,000-point scorers Willie Allen and Rusty Parker.

Miami has won 21 straight games at the Watsco Center, with an 8-0 mark this season, added to 13 straight victories in the 2015-16 campaign.

Coach Jim Larrañaga is just one win shy of 600 career victories, posting a 599-394 mark in 33 seasons as a head coach. With 600 wins, he will be one of five ACC coaches with 600 victories, and the other four men are in the Basketball Hall of Fame. Coach L has won 27 games at American International, 170 at Bowling Green, 273 at George Mason and 129 at Miami.

Miami is 10-10 all-time against Notre Dame, including a 3-2 record under Coach L.

The Hurricanes went 2-0 against the Fighting Irish last season, posting a 68-50 win in South Bend on March 2. Anthony “Amp” Lawrence, Jr., finished with career-highs in points (18), field goals made (5) and 3-pointers made (4) in Miami’s 79-70 win over Notre Dame on Feb. 3 last season. In that game, Kamari Murphy tied a season high with 11 points.

In 2002, John Salmons finished with 13 assists against Notre Dame. Since the NCAA began recording assists in 1985, that is tied for the second-most for one game in program history behind Michael Gardner, who had 14 assists against Pitt in 1993.

In the series history, Miami is 7-0 when it holds Notre Dame to less than 60 points.
