It's Crunch Time for Canes Basketball
There are some things you never thought would happen. Like the University of Miami basketball team being more respected than the football team. After last year's stunning season, the Canes are again bringing it, and Saturday they pulled off a major upset against #17 BC, putting UM on a five-game winning streak. Of course the other four opponents were easy work, including FAU, UNF, and the winless NCCU.
The rest of the season won't be as easy. Their next three opponents are all currently ranked higher. They might get a breather against Virgina Tech and NC State. But on February 4, the Canes kick of a string of games against current #4 Wake Forrest, #2 Duke, and #3 UNC. Egads. Let's hope UM turns this winning streak into an upset streak.
