Miami Hurricanes Basketball Comes Back Home After Long Week

The Miami Hurricanes basketball team had a roller coaster week with two games in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It started with a huge 77-73 win over rival FSU on Monday. Then, after a long break, the team was deflated with a 52-45 loss to last-place Virginia Tech. “It’s very frustrating, especially because of all the time we put into it.
