Miami Hurricanes coast past Boston College, remain undefeated in ACC
Any University of Miami basketball fan who worried that the newly anointed No. 8 team in the nation might have suffered a letdown against Conference weakling Boston College on Tuesday night wasn’t paying close attention to this particular group of Hurricanes.
North Carolina and Duke didn’t rattle them. Neither did FSU or 20,000 crazed North Carolina State fans.
So, there was no way the unflappable Canes were going to come unglued because of some silly ranking or a so-called “trap game” against the upset-minded Eagles. Miami dominated start to finish, and cruised to a 72-50 victory at BankUnited Center, extending its win streak to 10 games. The Hurricanes are 18-3, remain undefeated at 9-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and haven’t lost a game since Christmas Day.
And they’re not just winning. They’re winning big. UM has outscored three of its past five ACC opponents by 20-plus points.
