Sixth-year head coach Frank Haith believes his team can reemerge and rebound off their disappointing 7-9 record last season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. This year the Canes are predicted to finish 10th in the ACC preseason media poll.
As this college basketball year commenced, the Miami Hurricanes had higher expectations than previous seasons, as evidenced by a No. 16 ranking in the Associated Press (AP) poll. Although the Hurricanes are now unranked, there is still plenty of hope and optimism for returning to the NCAA Tournament, very possibly as a high seed.
Three Hurricanes finished with double-digits in points as Miami (6-2) defeated Florida International (4-6) 76-50 Friday night at the BankUnited Center.
