These teams are profiling pretty similarly right now. They are good but just how good we are not sure. Whoever wins gets a leg up.
I think the Hurricanes are the more obviously talented team but winning on the road in the ACC is how you prove what you are made of.
After a shaky start to conference play the Canes have picked it up. They have won three of four the only loss being on the road at FSU in OT.
Unfortunately they have lost Bruce Brown to injury. He probably has the highest ceiling of any player on the roster and forces them to go a little deeper than they would like.
Though he played on the wing he was the team’s best rebounder so it is going to be on everyone to pick it up. Specifically Dewan Huell who has the size and talent to produce more.
Lonnie Walker was a huge get as a recruit and he is finding his game. He has scored 12 or more in six straight and can be their go to scorer with Brown out.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies are going to be a test for the Hurricanes. They like to play fast and have one of the most efficient offenses in the nation.
There might not be a more balanced team anywhere in America given that 5 players score in double figures and pretty much everyone Buzz Williams puts out there can make a shot. .
The one regular who is not scoring at that level is wing Chris Clarke and he leads the team in rebounding. The group is essentially six deep.
Virginia generally does a great job getting the game at the pace they want. That is going to be the key for this home contest.

Free Miami Hurricanes vs. Virginia Tech Hokies NCAAB Prediction:
Two teams with very similar profiles so I expect the Hokies to be the favourite at home. Probably by 4.
I do like this Miami team, especially in underdog roles because of their commitment to defense. They are just 2-2 SUATS as road dogs this season.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Canes ATS
I have not seen a lot of Virginia Tech this season but I think they will defend their homecourt in a good game. Canes ATS however.
