CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Jordan Miller entered the transfer portal two years ago and wasn’t immediately on Miami’s radar. That is, until a guy who the Hurricanes know as “Clutch” called. Clutch’s real name is Gary Collins and he coached Miller during his AAU years. He called Miami assistant Bill Courtney and predicted Miller would be a breakout star. Fast forward two years. Clutch was right, and Miller and the Hurricanes are headed to the Final Four in large part because of his perfect shooting performance against Texas in the Elite Eight. Miller was 7 for 7 from the field and 13 for 13 from the foul line in Miami’s 88-81 win.
