Miami kicked off the season with a 3-1 run. The Hurricanes beat Canisius 77-67 in their opener, then lost to UCF 95-89. Two wins over Florida Atlantic 68-66 and Florida A&M 86-59 followed afterward. 

In Thursday’s matchup against Dayton, Miami recorded another loss. The Hurricanes fell behind 36-25 at halftime and couldn’t bridge the gap in a 76-60 result. Isaiah Wong led the way on 10 points with four rebounds. 

Over on the North Texas side, they were able to start of the year with a 2-1 run over their first three games. The Mean Green beat OK Christian in the opener, then fell to Buffalo 69-68 in game two. Game three was a 64-36 win over TX-Arlington.

In Thursday’s matchup against Kansas, the Mean Green held a 35-27 deficit heading into halftime. Not Texas was outscored from there 36-32 in a 71-59 defeat. Tylor Perry led the way with 23 points, two assists and one rebound. 

PICK: I’m going to take a stab on Miami here. The Hurricanes need to bounce back from a bad showing against Dayton, though. Miami shot a tepid 38.3 percent from the field in that loss (with Dayton shooting 58.7 on the other side) and were out-rebounded 29-24. 

As for North Texas, they weren’t terrible against Kansas on Thursday, posting a 39.7 percent mark from the field with 29 rebounds. The Jayhawks shot 51 percent from the floor themselves, which is really the reason why the Green lost the game. I like North Texas to hang around here for a while before Miami takes the cover.
