7-foot Tonye Jekiri a big reason for Hurricanes' success

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) In his most recent game, Miami Hurricanes senior Tonye Jekiri twice saved balls from going out of bounds under his basket, forced a turnover at midcourt and was the first player down the floor on a fast break.

For a seven-footer, Jekiri gets around.

The Nigerian is not a big scorer, averaging barely half a dozen shots and 8.1 points per game. But he's a big reason for the success of the No. 12-ranked Hurricanes (19-4, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who trail league leader North Carolina by one game heading into Sunday's game at Florida State.
