The story behind the story

You’ve probably seen it — the CNN video of a mother hoarsely screaming into the camera, begging President Trump to do something about last week’s school shooting.   You’ve probably heard her — Lori Alhadeff saying, “I just spent the last two hours putting the burial arrangements for my daughter’s funeral, who’s 14.” You probably didn’t notice Mike Galanos, who was standing off camera trying to think of a way to get his microphone back from Alhadeff. Galanos is an anchor and reporter for HLN (Headline News) and was in Parkland, Florida covering the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School...

Hockey blanked by Bulldogs

After disappointing 4-0 and 3-0 losses to No. 11/12 University of Minnesota Duluth this weekend, Miami hockey’s losing streak extends to five games. The RedHawks have now been shutout for three straight games — the longest the team has gone without a goal in its recorded history starting with the 1998-1999 season. “I’m not sure in my 25 years of coaching that I’ve seen a team go through some kind of adversity in such a short period of time,” head coach Enrico Blasi said at his weekly press conference. The ’Hawks (10-17-3, 5-13-2 NCHC) fell into a two-goal hole...

Hockey heads to Duluth, faces No. 11/12 Bulldogs

As the post-season approaches and after a disappointing series against No. 3/4 St. Cloud State University last weekend, Miami hockey is on the road to take on the No. 11/12 University of Minnesota-Duluth this weekend to try to gain momentum. “All games are about momentum and keeping that momentum,” head coach Enrico Blasi said at his weekly press conference. “For us, it’s that consistency and that effort and commitment to playing the right way — whether that’s managing the puck, or playing hard.” This is Miami and Minnesota-Duluth’s third to last series before the National Collegiate Hockey Conference playoffs....

Miami can’t complete comeback against Eastern Michigan

The Miami men’s basketball team dropped its third straight game after a comeback attempt fell one point short in Tuesday’s 58-57 loss to Eastern Michigan. The RedHawks (13-13, 6-7 MAC) opened the game with a promising 5-0 run before their offensive attack went cold, allowing the Eagles (15-11, 6-7 MAC) to rattle off 10 unanswered points of their own. Senior forward Rod Mills scored back-to-back buckets to make it 10-9, but Miami’s offensive struggles returned. The ‘Hawks went over 11 minutes without scoring a field goal, surrendering an 18-2 stretch in the process. Two layups and a three pointer...

The guys who make it and the guys who don’t

Defenseman Grant Hutton often feeds forward Josh Melnick for transitions out of Miami’s defensive zone. Melnick may dump the puck and forward Karch Bachman will use his speed to try to make space in the offensive zone. Forward Carson Meyer may then jump off the bench for a line change and, if defenseman Louie Belpedio is pinching, Meyer might find Belpedio in front of the net. Sometimes the puck goes in, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes 18- to 20-year-olds are drafted by the National Hockey League, sometimes they’re not. Regardless, every Monday through Thursday, 28 guys will trickle into Goggin...
