The Miami Hurricanes basketball team will learn its NCAA Tournament fate on Sunday evening. The Miami baseball team clinched its series versus North Carolina State on Saturday and will go for the sweep on Sunday. After its first week of spring practice, the Miami football team will be off until March 21.

After winning the ACC Regular title and losing in the semifinals of the tournament on Friday night to Duke the Miami Hurricanes basketball team will learn when and where they are playing with the NCAA. Miami will learn later in the week if an ankle injury to Norchad Omier will allow him to play in the NCAA Tournament.

Omier injured his ankle in the first minute on Friday night and did not return. Reports on Friday stated that Omier did not break his ankle. Head coach Jim Larranaga has stated he cares more about a potential assignment to play in Orlando than where Miami is seeded. Orlando will play its games on Thursday and Saturday.

After earning a 9-8 win over North Carolina State on Friday, the Miami baseball team battered North Carolina State 8-1 on Saturday night to win the series. The win for Miami was big over North Carolina State who is ranked first in the RPI. Miami entered the weekend ranked 102nd nationally in the RPI.

The Miami football team held its third spring practice on Thursday before going on spring break. Miami will return on March 21. Miami has 23 new players and six new coaches they are working in this spring. Andrea Adelson and David Hale of ESPN previewed ACC spring football with their top storylines and newcomers to watch.
