What will people be talking about? Is Syracuse firmly in the NCAA tournament or will they be sweating for the remainder of the week until Selection Sunday?
What should people be talking about? Will Miami be able to replicate the same effort they had when they thoroughly dominated UNC back in January, in their quarterfinal game on Thursday.
What’s next for these teams? Miami moves on to face #1 seed UNC in the first quarterfinal on Thursday at 12PM. Syracuse awaits their postseason fate.
