Miami basketball downs Virginia Tech, extends win streak to 7
Miami basketball is not getting the national respect it deserves.
The Hurricanes, after downing Virginia Tech Tuesday night by a score of 76-70, has improved its win streak to 7 and now sits atop the ACC conference standings at 14-4. And they’re not beating scrubs either; the Hurricanes have downed Duke and North Carolina, also beating Clemson on the road.
You can have the bacon, VT! We’ll take home the dub 😎

Miami’s guard tandem of Nijel Pack and Isaiah Wong was incredible once again, combining for 29 points. When those 2 are on fire, it’s hard to imagine any defense keeping up. Norchad Omier was incredible as well, adding a team-high 16 points with 14 rebounds and 3 steals.
The Hurricanes are looking as dangerous as any team in the country right now. Making it back to the Elite 8 seems more than in the picture with just 2 regular season games remaining.
