Men’s Basketball

The University of Miami men’s basketball team will play 14 games against teams that reached postseason last season, highlighted by visits from 2005 NCAA Champion North Carolina, and intrastate rivals Florida and Florida State.

Miami opens its 2005-06 season at the BCA Classic hosted by the University of Washington, November 13 to 15, in Seattle, Wash. Miami will face Texas-Arlington in the opening round. Host Washington won the Pac-10 tournament title last season and was a No. 1 seed in the 2005 NCAA tournament. Others competing in the eight team tournament include Air Force, Morgan State, UNC Greensboro, Northern Arizona and Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Miami opens its 2005-06 home schedule against Morgan State on Nov. 19. Miami’s difficult non-conference schedule includes trips to Temple (Nov. 27) and Michigan (Nov. 29), a battle against Florida at the Convocation Center (Dec. 22), and matchup with Final Four participant Louisville in the MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic, Dec. 31, at the National Car Rental Center in Sunrise, Fla.

Miami opens ACC play at North Carolina State on Dec. 18. The Hurricane’s ACC home opener will be against Maryland on Jan. 7 at the Convocation Center.
