Eye of the Hurricane

It comes down to the end

It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.

Losing to Duke in overtime 78-75, UM’s hot start in the first half became insignificant when Duke’s fiery offense took control and never let go.

The Blue Devils cut UM’s 16 point lead down to six with over 13 min left in the second half and continued their scoring run all throughout the half with the help of Henderson and Scheyer.

Difficulty finishing the game seems to be a re-occuring theme recently for the University of Miami, which has also suffered overtime losses to Virginia Tech and NC State.

What’s the problem?

I know what it wasn’t in this game.

McClinton, who had a game total 34 points, put on a star performance hitting a long-distance three-pointer to tie it up

68-68 with 14 seconds left, sending the game into overtime.

However, Duke proved to be the team that remembered how to finish a game.

That’s all that matters.
