Making the Hurricanes’ win all the more impressive is that they were once again without Ja’Quan Newton, who was serving his third and final game of a suspension for a violation of team rules. Miami went 3-0 without Newton, the team’s second-leading scorer (15.0 PPG) and leader in assists (3.6), previously collecting wins over Georgia Tech and Clemson. Shortly after the victory, the junior point guard issued a contrite apology via his private Twitter account.
