Wednesday’s game is in the midst of a four-game stretch over eight days for the Hurricanes– including a pair of contests on the road. Miami split the first two games over this span, cruising past North Carolina Central at home last Friday before dropping Sunday’s game at Rutgers.


Miami went 12-4 at home in the BankUnited Center last season and has won 15 of its last 19 at home – including a 2-0 mark so far this season. Over the last four seasons, the Hurricanes have compiled a 40-10 (.800) record at home and have won 15-straight regular-season non-conference matches at home, last falling to Ohio State, 73-68, in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Dec. 2, 2008.

Despite being edged by one rebound at Rutgers for the first time all season, the Hurricanes continue to lead the ACC with a +11.2 rebounding margin over four games this season. Miami posted back-to-back +20 rebounding margins last week, building a +20 advantage at Memphis and then a +26 margin in its home win over North Carolina Central.

Sophomore Reggie Johnson leads Miami with 11.0 rebounds per game, including a career-high 14 at Rutgers, to rank third in the ACC. Adding 12.3 points per game, Johnson is among three ACC players currently averaging a double-double, joining Maryland’s Jordan Williams (18.4 ppg, 12.4 rpg) and Florida State’s Chris Singleton (19.3 ppg, 10.3 rpg). In addition, Johnson’s 4.8 offensive boards per game ties North Carolina’s John Henson for tops in the league.


After posting the first double-double of his young career at No. 19 Memphis, Reggie Johnson has now notched three-straight double-doubles for the Hurricanes – including a 12-point, 14-rebound effort at Rutgers. His three double-doubles ties FSU’s Chris Singleton as the second most recorded by an ACC player this season. Maryland’s Jordan Williams has an ACC-leading four double-doubles in 2010-11.


Junior Malcolm Grant extended his three-point streak to 11 straight games after hitting one from beyond the arc at Rutgers. Grant’s streak is the second-longest active streak in the ACC behind Florida State’s Deividas Dulkys, who has hit a three in 13-straight games.


Following Wednesday’s contest versus McNeese State, the Hurricanes will cross the state of Florida to take on Florida Gulf Coast on Sat., Nov. 27. Following this stretch, Miami will play host to three-straight opponents – Ole Miss, West Virginia and Stetson – at home at the the BankUnited Center.
