Jim Larranaga is back in the Sweet 16 for the third time since he led George Mason to the Final Four 16 years ago. And he’s back in the second weekend of the Tournament with one of the oldest teams in college basketball. After narrowly defeating USC on Friday, the Hurricanes led wire to wire, blazing past a strong Auburn team.
The Tigers’ deflation on offense made them prone to an experienced team, with an even battle ahead against Iowa State, which also pulled off two upsets to reach the Sweet 16. Miami went 5-0 in the regular season against the four ACC schools from North Carolina, two of which are still in the Tournament. But The U isn’t built to win two more games in March.
