Miami baseball is looking forward to 2021 season after abrupt ending last year

Last year, Miami was ranked No. 33 in the Preseason National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association poll. This year, the RedHawks are not on the list.  But that does not mean there is no potential to be found in Miami baseball. The team finished behind Central Michigan and Kent State in the Mid-American Conference preseason poll. The RedHawks had 96 votes with one first-place vote.

Lairy scores career high in close loss to Akron

  The Zips had the ball, up 76-74 with a minute and a half remaining. For 29 seconds, the RedHawks did their job. A good defensive effort from senior forward Dalonte Brown made senior guard Loren Cristian Jackson pick up his dribble with just four seconds left on the shot clock. With an 11-inch height difference between the two, Jackson pivoted and pirouetted into a contested three-pointer with Brown all over him.
