Miami Basketball Highlights Vs NC State, Plus Final Thoughts

The 'Canes improved to 3-2 in the ACC with a crucial win on Thursday Night.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

First the Highlights:

Closing Thoughts: Big, Big, Big WIN!.....  NC State is going to be tough all year long..... Both of these teams are clearly in the upper half of the ACC, and both have played very difficult early schedules within the conference...... UM benefited greatly from the fact that Pack stars Travor Lacey and Ralston Turner were just 7-25 combined from the floor. But give some credit to the defense of Davon Reed and Sheldon McClellan for that.  Reed is easily UM's best perimeter defender.......  Angel Rodriguez was just 2-8 from the floor, but none of those were "bad" shots. Great job reigning it in by the UM PG, who also had 6 assists........  I don't care what the box score shows, Tonye Jekiri was the most valuable player on the floor for either team tonight........Omar Sherman was a presence on O, and even blocked 4 shots, but inexplicably had just 2 rebounds.......Ivan Cruz Uceda still has a ways to go........

Next up Syracuse at the Carrier Dome, Saturday 4PM.
