Take a guess at when this photo was taken on my BlackBerry.

An hour before the game, maybe 30 minutes?

Make that eight minutes prior to tipoff!

It’s been a problem for awhile now, for different events at the BankUnited Center, but it’s even worse when the basketball team doesn’t win.

What’s the solution, then?

How about a buzzer beater by senior guard James Dews for a 64-62 upset victory over No. 20 Georgia Tech?!



  1. UM fans are pathetic. Truly pathetic. Especially the student body, which gets in FREE and still doesn’t support its team. They should be ashamed of themselves. All those years the team was promised that if they build an on-campus arena, fans would come. Hasn’t happened, and it puts Frank Haith, Katie Meier at a recruiting disadvantage.

  2. I would have killed for an on-campus arena of any kind, let alone of this quality, when I was in school.

    We took the Metro-Snail to Miami Arena to watch UM get creamed by ‘Nova, Georgetown, etc. We could at least get 2500 people to make that trip. I don’t know why you can’t fill a great place like this now.

    Fair weather fans are to be expected in Miami, but the students? It certainly makes me wish I lived close enough to keep going to all the games.

  3. “The crowd numbered less than 500, pep band included, when the Hurricanes took the court a few minutes before tip-off. Despite their tradition of poor attendance, the Hurricanes are playing their best at home, where they’re 11-1.”

    im not even gonna sugar coat it. our fanbase is sorry. do any of the students/alumni/locals even realize we have athletics!?

    GO TO THE GAMES!!!!!
