BIRMINGHAM, ALA (January 14, 2022) – The FIU track and field program opened up the 2022 campaign competing at the UAB Blazer Invite on Friday in Birmingham. 

Atene Slizeviciute highlighted FIU’s day in her Panther debut, placing second in the high jump with a mark of 1.71m, just outside the FIU all-time top five list. 

“It’s great to be back out on the track, and I was impressed by a number of performances today,” said head coach Ryan Heberling. “Now we focus our attention on Saturday and continuing to compete at a high level.” 

Junior Kristin Lubeskie set a personal best in the pole vault to place sixth with a mark of 3.91m, while second-year freshman Michaelle Valentin had an impressive performance in the throws, setting personal bests in the shot and weight throw, placing seventh in the latter. 

The Panthers are back in action Saturday morning for the UAB Vulcan Invitational.

Sam Bennett will skate onto the ice at the Saddledome on Tuesday night for the first time since the Calgary Flames traded him to the Florida Panthers last April.

Bennett spent seven seasons in Calgary after the Flames made him the fourth overall pick of the 2014 NHL Draft.

Although things did not work out the way anyone hoped in Calgary, Bennett has elevated his game in the Sunshine State.

The Miami basketball team hosts North Carolina following a week off. Miami last played when they lost 65-64 at Florida State on January 11. The Hurricanes have started the season 13-4 overall and 5-1 to lead the ACC. North Carolina travels to Coral Gables 12-4 overall and with wins in nine of its last 11.

The loss by the Miami basketball team at Florida State last week broke a nine-game Hurricanes winning streak. Returning home head coach Jim Larranaga stated he hopes for a big crowd on Tuesday night. North Carolina will challenge Miami with its pace and size. The Tar Heels average 79.3 points per game which are 32nd nationally.

With an undersized lineup, Miami has played at a quicker pace this season than in past years. Miami is averaging 76.3 PPG which is 81st. The Hurricanes and Tar Heels should produce a high-scoring game on Tuesday night. Miami has scored at least 70 points in 11 of their 17 games this season.

North Carolina has scored 70 points in all but one game in 2021-22. The Tar Heels travel to Coral Gables 4-1 in the ACC, one half-game behind Miami. This is the biggest home game of the season for Miami. If the Hurricanes defeat North Carolina that will add to their win over Duke in their quest to contend for the ACC Championship.
