Flush off their success in the ACC tourney your Miami Hurricanes will unforunately be sitting at home (or wherever they are on Spring Break) to watch both the NIT and NCAA tournaments on TV.
Since hoops mania and bracketology are sweeping the Country we thought we would help some Hurricane fans return to some of the glory they enjoyed as UM knocked off Wake Forest and Virginia Tech in consecutive games before giving eventual ACC Champ Duke all they could handle in the semi-final game.
Here is the Wake Forest article I posted at Raycom Sports:
And here are some video highlights of Miami's 21 point first round thrashing of the Demon Deacons courtesy of our friends at Raycom Sports:
Here is the Virginia Tech article I posted at Raycom:
And here are some www.raycomsports.com highlights of the Hurricanes' 70-65 quarterfinal "Revenge Tour" victory over the Choking Hokies (NOTE: It was not raining or cold during the game):

We also thought we would give the fans a chance to evaluate Head Coach Frank Haith and the Hurricane team returning for next season. Miami loses three seniors from this year's team: Forwards Dwayne Collins and Cyrus McGowan and Guard James Dews. Losses indeed, but not so serious or devastating.
Looking ahead Miami returns several high flyers for the 2010-2011 season. Next year looks very positive with the main stars coming back: Guards Durand "Durand" Scott, Malcome "President" Grant, forward DeQuan "Not Mrs." Jones and center Reggie "Big Daddy" Johnson.
So Hurricane fans do you project for the next season?
Here is our poll for U to vote on Head Coach Frank Haith:
