No. 2 Seed in East Regional
The Miami Hurricanes won the outright ACC regular-season title, as well as the ACC tournament. This is the Hurricanes' best season in school history, and they will be the talk of the tournament.
Second-year head coach Jim Larranaga has his team on a mission, and opponents should be worried if they have to face this dangerous Miami squad.
Sophomore guard Shane Larkin has been hot and averaged 23.7 points per game in the ACC tournament. Senior forward-center Kenny Kadji and senior guard Durand Scott have been keys to Miami's success all season long as well.
The Hurricanes are a quick team, and when they start shooting lights-out from beyond the arc, they are hard to beat. Miami is also a physical team on the boards.
Miami will make it past their first two games, as they will face Pacific and either Colorado or Illinois. The Hurricanes will most likely take on Marquette in the Sweet 16 and win, meaning they will be in a showdown with No. 1 seed Indiana for a trip to the Final Four in Atlanta.
Miami will take down the Hoosiers and make their first Final Four in school history. Not only will they make the Final Four, but they will play for a national championship on April 8.
The Hurricanes may not have the experience of playing in an NCAA tournament, but they will be a team to be reckoned with and prove to everyone why they are one of the best teams in college basketball this season.
Prediction: Championship game
