Preview: Miami Hurricanes
Defending ACC champions likely to struggle with depleted roster
2012-13: 29-7 (15-3 ACC)
In-conference offense: 1.07 points per possession (3rd)
In-conference defense: 0.93 points allowed per possession (1st)

(Its only real competition comes from 1998-99, when a UM squad coached by Leonard Hamilton and led by Tim James and Johnny Hemsley also grabbed a No. 2 seed but fell in the round of 32.)
