Brown has been the Hurricanes’ most versatile player, leading the team in rebounds, assists and steals per game at 7.1, 4.0 and 1.3, respectively. He is also second on the team in scoring, averaging 11.4 points per game.
How will Miami fare against its next three conference opponents? Pittsburgh and Wake Forest have the worst two records in the ACC.
The Hurricanes (15-5, 4-4 ACC) made their living from downtown, hitting a school record 17 three-pointers on 50 percent shooting, nearly doubling the Seminoles’ makes from deep. But even with its offensive fireworks, Miami could do little to slow its rivals on the other end.
The Hurricanes, who were on a three-game winning streak, were able to hold national Player of the Year candidate Asia Durr to a season-low seven points on 1-of-7 shooting. But Durr had plenty of help, which ultimately doomed UM.
The Canes (15-4, 4-3 ACC) were down 69-67 in regulation with just 13 seconds to find a bucket. Walker was the answer, going up against two Cardinal defenders for an acrobatic layup to tie the game and send it to extra minutes.
Miami’s versatility was on display with 10 players contributing at least 15 minutes of action, and nine of those players scored. UM outscored BC 23-8 in points off the bench and forced 20 turnovers.
While this inexperienced roster has seen its fair share of bumps and bruises, former Canes think the adjustment period is normal.
The Miami Hurricanes snapped a two-game skid with an 86-81 win over North Carolina State Jan. 21. Sophomore Bruce Brown led the Canes with 19 points and nine assists.
When it was time for her first official game at the University of Miami, the freshman guard was absent, and it wasn’t because she was nervous. That same day was her grandmother’s funeral.
