PITTSBURGH (AP) Sheldon McClellan spent most of Wednesday afternoon trying to get his troublesome groin to loosen up. At one point, Miami's leading scorer wasn't even sure he would be able to play against Pittsburgh.
For a half, it looked like sitting out wouldn't have been a bad idea. McClellan missed six of his first seven shots and watched the Hurricanes fall behind in a de facto NCAA Tournament elimination game. Earlier in the year McClellan might have decided to stop shooting altogether. Not anymore.
"I knew I had to make shots down the stretch and stay aggressive for my team," McClellan said.
