The Miami Hurricanes are heading to the 2023 NCAA men’s basketball tournament as an at-large team. They shared the regular season ACC title with Virginia and finished with a 25-7 overall record. The Hurricanes fell to Duke in the ACC tournament, 85-78, but have earned a 5-seed in the tournament.
Miami is known for its backcourt consisting of Isaiah Wong and Jordan Miller, who combined to average 31.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 2.7 steals per game. The team’s best forward is sophomore Norchad Omier. He played in 32 games this season and averaged 13.6 points, 9.7 boards and 1.3 blocks per game.
