Miami has five regular season games remaining with five at home. They are currently likely to receive a middling seed in the NCAA Tournament. If they are going to move up to a more favorable seed Miami is going to have to close the season strong.

Miami begins the final stretch of games by hosting Syracuse on Saturday. Miami finishes the season at Notre Dame on Monday night, they host Boston College a week from Saturday, travel to North Carolina February 27 and host Virginia Tech March 3 in the final game of the regular season.

With three weeks remaining until the ACC Tournament Miami is going to have to find their offense. They have been getting help elsewhere from D.J. Vasiljevic and Chris Lykes among others. Opponents have seen the way to beat Miami know. Don’t let Walker take the game over or Huell get his points inside.
