Coach Jack Owens and the Miami men's basketball team have the chance to end their two-game losing streak against the Akron Zips Friday at Millett Hall. The contest, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, was moved to Friday night so it could air on ESPNU.
In a critical year for head coach Jack Owens and his players, the Miami men's basketball team will look to build on its momentum from last March, when its season ended abruptly after a first-round win in the MAC tournament. Despite losing star player Nike Sibande, the team brings back experienced talent like senior forward Dalonte Brown and junior guard Isaiah Coleman-Lands. The RedHawks will open the season at home on Nov. 25 at 1pm against North Dakota.
Miami football will make its grand return to Yager Stadium Wednesday, Nov. 4, against Ball State. The defending MAC Champs start the year in pole position, ranked as the preseason No. 1 team in the MAC East. Despite the success of the previous season, the team has no delusions of grandeur and is fully aware of the challenge that awaits it.
