Hot off a regular season ending win over Boston College, the Miami Hurricanes men’s basketball team survived a 79-73 battle against the Pittsburgh Panthers Tuesday afternoon at the Greensboro Coliseum to advance to the second round of the ACC tournament.
After leading for most for the first half, the Miami Hurricanes women's basketball team was outscored by 10 points in the third quarter on their way to a 67-56 loss on the road versus the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Atlanta, Georgia.
"That was the tale of two halves," Miami head coach Jim Larrañaga said after the game. "The first half offensively we were totally out of sync. In the second half, we did a much better job sharing the ball, finding the open man, and getting some good looks."
Mompremier’s absence forced the Canes to rely on their four junior guards to carry the team for most of the year. With all four guards now having that experience heading into their senior season, Miami will be looking at this year's group of seniors to help the team return to the NCAA tournament.
