Crosstown Rivals: FIU @ UM

Oh, no! Your Miami Hurricanes basketball team has fallen out of the AP's Top 25 poll! They're currently 5-2, and both of those losses were to unbeaten teams, so there's not that much shame and a good chance for a resurgence. But tonight they get the chance to let off some steam and build up some confidence against cross-town rivals, the FIU Golden Panthers. The Panthers are currently 4-5, and Miami will get the home-court advantage.

Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. Don't expect a brawl, unless underdog FIU is victorious. In which case Cane fans might try to take it out on their own team.
