Cleaning the Glass
Malcolm Grant needs just three assists to join Scott with 100. They would become the first UM teammates to accomplish this in back-to-back seasons since Thomas Hocker and Kevin Presto achieved the feat in both 1987-88 and 1988-89. In 2009, Grant and Scott became the first UM duo since 1992-93 to collect 100 assists in the same season and the fourth pair of teammates to do so in UM history.
Grant hit one three-pointer versus the Yellow Jackets to extend his three-point streak to an ACC-long 18-straight games. With 143 career threes in just his second season as Hurricane, Grant is10th place all-time in program history in triples made, while his 82 three-pointers this season are fifth best in Miami history.
