With the season over, where did Miami 117th team land compared to your expectations?
After losing the only consistent creative scorer, I thought it’d be a struggle and my biggest hope for the team was they’d show steady improvement and qualify for the MAC tourney. I think they did that.
My big surprises:
6-12 and 12-20 probably was about my expectations but the strong finish including beating Ohio was nice
The 5 person recruiting class probably gives more optimism than anything on the court
Safford was better than expected. Anderson was as well
But since we went 12-20 and finished near 300 in KenPom that highlights that some guys were worse
Final pleasant surprise were the 2 free ticket big crowds. Makes me think that maybe we could average around 3,000 again. Mind you that is 1,000 more than either Akron or Kent averaged with their great teams
I think the attendance for a great product would be shockingly high. Geographically speaking, we’re in the heart of hoops country.
Don’t know how many have seen it, but there is a Miami specific site that is expanding coverage on Miami men’s basketball and football. To check out an end-of-year look at basketball article, go to: https://www.mro-plus.com/home/miami-basketball5085628
Welcome! Your link doesn’t seem to work.
Seemed to be pasted weird, I copied it directly and it worked:
I guess this counts for End of Season discussion: Huge collection of action pics for 2022-23 games at:
Hope that works. I might need a lesson on sharing links.
Welcome. It’s a great spot to land if you love Mu athletics.
So…I didn’t see Miami represented on this list of the All-MAC academic team. Hopefully next year, we see Miami Men’s Basketball represented.
Correct.one of four MAC programs without a selection…
Is there still a rule that first year players aren’t eligible? If so, that would be a big reason why given how few returning players we had.
I will assume they are all good students. Frankly, I’m more interested now in all-MAC rather than All Academic.
Good point. It is that way in a number of conferences.
Nice to see the TV scoreboard on CBS showing MIAMI (FL) instead of just Miami.
Great minds . . . I had the same thought.
