The Bleacher Report also ranked the NCAA Tournament teams from one through 68. Miami came in at 27. That’s slightly below their seed line. A six seed would place them between 21-24.

Miami has had trouble scoring at times this season, but not all season as Greer states. Kerry Miller of the Bleacher Report stated in his reason to worry that the Hurricanes don’t have a player to hand the ball to in crunch time. This is the classic case of out of town stupid. Walker has been the go-to-player ever since Brown went out with the injury.

"“Reason to Worry: At times, this offense is just plain awful—and that was true long before Miami lost Bruce Brown to a foot injury. Lonnie Walker IV and Chris Lykes have been shouldering the scoring load for a couple of months, but there’s no one on this team who you can just hand the ball and say, “Here, go get us some points.” And that lack of a go-to guy could be Miami’s undoing. March Madness Ceiling: Tough call here, since Miami is competitive in every game it plays. This is the type of team that could absolutely upset a No. 1 seed on a buzzer-beater, but it’s also a team that could fall flat on its face in the first round. I’ll put the ceiling at Elite Eight, because it’s unlikely the Hurricanes knock off both a No. 1 and No. 2 seed to reach the Final Four. One big upset is possible, though.”"
