It wouldn’t be difficult to name a most valuable player from Miami’s 68-59 win against the North Carolina men’s basketball team Thursday night.
Hands down, Kenny Kadji was the best player on the floor.
He dropped in a game-high 18 points. He pulled in nine rebounds. He swatted four shots and he even dished out three assists.
“Kenny is the recipient of a lot of good ball movement,” Miami coach Jim Larranaga said. “When he gets in rhythm, he shoots the ball as well as any big man I’ve ever coached.
“When the middle opens up because of Shane Larkin and Durand Scott being guarded so hard on the perimeter, every once in a while he’ll get a running layup — he had two of those tonight. … He played big, big, big tonight, and the blocked shots were huge.”
