• Miami's Brown won't play, will dress for 1st tourney game

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami Hurricanes star Bruce Brown Jr.'s injured left foot is healing faster than expected, but he won't play in Thursday's NCAA Tournament game against Loyola of Chicago.

    Miami coach Jim Larranaga said Tuesday that Brown will be in uniform but not play. After initially indicating Brown likely would miss the rest of the season, Larranaga didn't rule out the return of the sophomore guard.

    Brown missed 11 games before receiving medical clearance Monday to remove his walking boot and rejoin practice. He's considered a potential NBA first-round pick this year.

    Brown underwent surgery Feb. 1, and the No. 22-ranked Hurricanes are 7-4 without him.
