Miami’s 2023-24 season has come to a close.

The No. 14-seed Hurricanes fell to No. 11-seed Boston College 81-65 in the opening round of the ACC Tournament on Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

Here are 3 quick takeaways from the game:

Hard to overcome a rough shooting night

Miami and Boston College played close in the first 5 minutes. It was a 13-13 game at the 14:57 mark of the 1st half. The Eagles went on a 14-0 run to open up a 27-13 lead and never looked back.

UM’s best run of the night was a 7-0 spurt. The Canes did not have the shooting to seriously pressure BC in the 2nd half, beginning the final 20 minutes in a 15-point deficit (47-32).

Miami was 27-of-71 from the field, while Boston College went 31-of-63. UM was just 7-of-29 from 3-point range, while BC made 11-of-31 triples.

It was a relatively quiet night for the refs. Only 16 total free throws were shot during the game.

Quinten Post could not be contained

Miami had no answer for Quinten Post. The Boston College forward was the game’s standout performer, notching a historic double-double of 30 points and 13 rebounds.

Post was consistent. He scored 17 in the 1st half on 5-of-10 shooting from the field, including 2-of-5 from 3-point range with 5 free throws.

In the 2nd half, Post made sure BC kept its foot on the gas. He added 13 points on 5-of-8 field-goal shooting, with a 3-pointer and 2 free throws. Post played 36 minutes, which may catch up with him if BC makes a tournament run.

Norchad Omier was Miami’s top performer with a double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds over 29 minutes.

A forgettable end to a forgettable year

Tuesday’s loss was a fitting ending to Miami’s season. UM finishes the year 15-17.

It wasn’t an embarrassing blowout that will hang over the offseason. It wasn’t the kind of heartbreak that leaves anyone thinking what-if.

The 2023-24 season just wasn’t the Hurricanes’ year. After last year’s Final Four appearance and back-to-back trips to the Elite Eight, no one has soured on Jim Larrañaga.

It’s time for Miami to regroup and show that this season was just a bump in the road. It’s likely going to be a busy offseason of transfers in Coral Gables.
