Found March 17, 2013 on Fox Sports Florida:
It didnt take long for the NCAA selection committee chairman to be asked why the University of Miami didnt receive a No. 1 seed in this years tournament.

That might offer some consolation to Hurricanes fans, many of whom likely believe UM should be a No. 1 seed instead of being No. 2 in the East Region. But you know what?
