Pretty tough loss Sunday, 78-73 to the Wolfpack. Miami put themselves in a 12-point halftime hole, and never recovered. As such, sitting at 10-7 and 1-3 in the ACC, it might be time to alter expectations for this squad, if you haven't already. Jim Larranaga said as much with his frustrated post-game comments, dropping bombs like "I was anticipating what our squad would be like before my staff and I arrived and I've found that we have a lot more work to do than we originally thought" and a first half that was "really disappointing and very discouraging." Bah.
If there is any hope to salvage a respectable season, it needs to start with winning games vs fellow basement-dwelling teams, ala the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets tonight at 9 pm ET. Tech sits at 8-11 (1-4 ACC).
