Following their first-ever Final Four appearance in 2023, the Miami Hurricanes took a big step back in 2024. Miami was a preseason favorite to contend for the ACC title this season, but the loss of key assets from the Final Four team proved to be too much to overcome. Miami’s defense was atrocious while its offense was solid, although not spectacular. Miami showed better wagering value than expected for a team that was such a disappointment. Only God-forsaken Louisville was worse than The U in the ACC standings.

Miami Hurricanes Team Review

Overall, the Miami Hurricanes are 15-16 straight up, 15-15-1 against the spread, and 14-17 over/under the total. Miami has national metrics of 110th for scoring offense, 120th for field goal percentage, 48th for 3-point field goal percentage, 69th for free throw percentage, and 100th for offensive rebounding. While defensively, Miami is 232nd for scoring defense, 146th for field goal percentage permitted, 147th for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 239th for defensive rebounding.

Late on, Miami has covered two of its previous ten games. Maimi has gone over the total in three of its last ten outings. First among Miami scorers is F Norchad Omier, with 17.0 points and 10.0 rebounds per game. G Matthew Cleveland averages 13.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.

Quinten Post paired 30 points with 13 rebounds to propel Boston College past Miami 81-65 in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Post netted 17 points in the first half, including nine during a 14-0 run that gave the 11th-seeded Eagles a lead they never relinquished. Jaeden Zackery chipped in 16 points for Boston College.

Norchad Omier powered the 14th-seeded Hurricanes with 18 points and 13 rebounds. Nijel Pack added 18 in his return to the lineup after missing five of Miami's last six games with a lower-body injury.

Matthew Cleveland chipped in 12 points as the Hurricanes finished the season with ten straight losses and an 0-3 mark against Boston College.

Miami trailed by 16 midway through the second half before whittling its deficit to 64-56 on Michael Nwoko's layup with 8:04 to play.

Devin McGlockton answered to calm the Hurricanes' surge, and Post followed with a 3-pointer from the top of the key that widened the Eagles' lead to 69-56.

Boston College held at least an 11-point lead over the final seven minutes to notch its third straight win.

The University of Miami has traditionally been known as a football school, but Jim Larranaga is doing all he can to change that. As the football team has struggled in recent years, going through five different head coaches since Larranaga’s hire in 2011, the former George Mason coach has transformed Miami into one of the most reliable basketball programs in the ACC.

The Hurricanes are in the midst of their best basketball run ever. The past two seasons have seen the school reach its first two Elite Eights, and last year, they broke through to reach the Final Four for the first time in program history.

After tying Virginia for the ACC regular season title last season, Miami Basketball hoped ing to remain on top, but it faced significant roster turnover. Its top two scorers from last year, ACC Player of the Year Isaiah Wong and Second Team All-ACC selection Jordan Miller, are gone to the NBA.

The Hurricanes showed last March what the ACC has known for several years now: They’re one of the toughest outs in the sport, given their unconventional small-ball approach on offense and turnover production on defense. But losing Wong — and do-everything wing Jordan Miller — hurts, and replacing them won’t be easy.

Expectations around the country were high for the Hurricanes. In the ACC, only Duke ranked ahead of Miami in preseason AP poll. The Blue Devils secured the #2 ranking, while Miami came in at #13. North Carolina is the only other ACC school in the top 25, clocking in at 19th.
