Before getting upset by Wake Forest the other afternoon, Miami had the most impressive run in college basketball. This was the Hurricanes' first loss in the ACC and only their fourth all season. This group of veterans began their season unranked before their energy and swagger brought them to a No. 2 ranking. What is most surprising, however, is how they're doing it.
The Hurricanes are 141st in points per game, 113th in rebounds per game and 269th in assists per game.
They started off slowly by losing to Florida Gulf Coast in their second game of the season, but once they entered ACC play, the Hurricanes dominated former No. 1 Duke and the rest of the conference. Despite the loss to Wake Forest, Miami is still in prime contention for a No. 1 seed come March Madness, and for a team that began the season unranked, well, that's pretty damn good.
