Small Consolation: Miami Basketball Earns #2 Seed in NIT

UM falls short of the NCAAT but will be playing postseason hoops.

Michael Shroyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Hurricanes will host NC Central Tuesday at 7 PM on ESPN 2.

After beating Duke on the road by 16 in January, Coach L's squad had larger ambitions.

The fact the 'Canes did not even earn a #1 seed in this Tournament is also jarring.

Perhaps the sting of missing out on the big tourney will be soothed some by a trip to MSG.

"I think our players were very hopeful we would make the NCAA.  We needed to win 1 or 2 more games.  But now that we are in the NIT we have very little time to feel sorry for ourselves."  - UM Coach Jim Larranaga.
