Miami is coming off a disappointing loss to the No. 5 Maryland Terrapins Thursday night in College Park.  Maurita Reid was the only player for the Hurricanes that scored in double-figures with 15 points. 


The 50-90 loss was the worst on the season for Miami and they will look to bounce back against BostonCollege.
