Hurricanes ride a wave of momentum

A 10 and an 11 have only met three times at the Sweet Sixteen.

A 10 has only made the Final Four once and the Elite 8 eight times in March Madness history. 11 Seeds have made the Final Four five times, most recently in last year’s UCLA roster.

Neither seed has ever produced a national championship, but Miami and Iowa State will each look to finish first.

Miami (-2.5) over Iowa State

The Cyclones were better off against a 3 seed and a 6 seed. Against the 10th-seeded Hurricanes, Iowa State will face an explosive offense for the first time in the tournament after their week one opponents (LSU, Wisconsin) combined 6-for-41 by 3 points. Miami’s athletic backcourt (Kameron McGusty, Isaiah Wong, Charlie Moore) just led the team to 79 points in a dominating performance against Auburn’s top-10 defense, and the Hurricanes’ underwhelming defense needn’t worry against Iowa State’s 160th offense 35.1 percent of the field shot in the first two laps.

Expect Miami to cruise to its first-ever Elite Eight, 16 years after coach Jim Larrañaga guided George Mason to the Final Four.

The memory of the second-round collapse against Baylor is hard to erase, but the Tar Heels’ resilience in the recovery and defeat of the defending champions in overtime meant far more.
