Miami-Boston College basketball preview
With three games remaining in the regular season, Miami is in desperate need of getting itself together.
The Hurricanes have lost three of their last four to fall to eighth in the ACC and closer to the NCAA tournament bubble. ESPN Bracketology expert Joe Lunardi dropped UM to an 8 seed in his bracket update Monday.
After beating Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. on Monday, Miami returns home, but the Watsco Center has not been as welcoming a site recently. The Hurricanes have dropped their last two home games after starting the season 9-1.
But the Hurricanes can get everything back to normal against a Boston College team that has struggled mightily on the road, posting a 2-8 record while averaging 68.9 points per game — 6.5 points below its season average.
To win, Miami needs to avoid a crippling second half like the one it had in its Feb. 10 loss to the Eagles when it shot just 28 percent from the floor after shooting 57.1 percent in the opening period. Boston College also shot 57.1 percent in that first half, but averted a significant dropoff after halftime, shooting 40.9 percent.
The Eagles will lean on guards Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson again after the duo combined for 53 points on 17-for-26 shooting while playing every minute in the first meeting.
