14. Miami Hurricanes
Tournament Results: USC 68-66, Auburn 79-61
Jim Larranaga is a witch in the best sense of the term. Miami isn’t a deep team — nor is it overly gifted from an athletic standpoint. The Hurricanes are also quite small compared to the rest of the field. However, this is a dangerous team. Miami just took care of two teams (USC, Auburn) far bigger and more talented. It’s an incredibly well-coached team with terrific guard-centric chemistry.
Iowa State is a great matchup for Miami as it looks to make the Elite 8. Kameron McGusty leads the four-guard starting lineup, though he’s helped out tremendously by Isaiah Wong and the well-traveled Charlie Moore.
