In a loaded ACC, teams near the middle of the conference standings still have good NCAA Tournament cases.

That’s the case with both the North Carolina State Wolfpack and Miami Hurricanes; both appear to be on the right side of the bubble, despite non-winning records in conference play.

The Hurricanes have been doing it with defense, surrendering just 62 points per game. They’re currently ranked No. 25 and have one Top 25 win in ACC play against Florida State. Miami is coming off consecutive close losses to Clemson and Duke, though, and need some momentum.

Miami’s defense, ironically, is what let them down against Duke. They have the Blue Devils on the ropes before they gave up 18 consecutive points, watching a lead debilitate to a huge deficit. Jim Larranaga will look to set up his team to finish this game victorious.

Miami, meanwhile, has lost three of its last four games. But it’s been nearly a week since the Hurricanes fell to the Blue Devils, and Miami head coach Jim Larranaga said he gathered a few of his team leaders to address their inconsistent play.

“The extreme differences in performances,” the coach said. “They’re kind of confused by it as well. … There’s a dramatic difference. We’re trying to simplify what we’re doing offensively so maybe we can get a little bit more consistency.”
