No. 2 Miami vs. No. 15 Pacific (pregame)

We are just a few minutes from tipoff here at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas as the 15th-seeded Tigers try to pull the upset over the heavily favored No. 2 Hurricanes.

If coach Bob Thomason wants to play the “No Respect” card, he wouldn’t have to look further then the pregame starting lineup sheet that had Lorenzo McCloud and Khalil Kelley’s names misspelled. No such issues for the Hurricanes.

These Tigers will have to play the best game fo their season and probably their lives to have a chance this afternoon against Atlantic Coast Conference champions. Pacific has moved the ball superbly most of the season, so that won’t be the issue, they have to make shots and lots of them.

Pacific’s system and inspired play keeps it close, but Miami prevails 77-65.
