No. 3 UVA (12-0) opens ACC action at Miami (10-3) on Saturday, Jan. 3. Tipoff at BankUnited Center is set for 5:30 p.m.
ACC Network’s Tim Brant and Mike Gminski breakdown Miami’s dramatic win over Virginia Tech in the ACC Tournament. Erik Swoope scored 14 points and hit the go-ahead hoop for the Hurricanes with under 3 minutes to play. Miami will play seventh seeded NC State on Thursday at 7 pm.
#15 seed Virginia Tech had a golden opportunity to take the lead in the final seconds, but two missed Joey van Zegeren free throws were the difference in allowing #10 seed Miami to hold on for a 57-53 win in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Wednesday.
Miami made it interesting for a half, but #11 UVa. held the Hurricanes to four field goals in a dominating second half en route to posting a 65-4o win Wednesday in Charlottesville, Va.
