CORAL GABLES, Fla. – For the second season in a row, the Hurricanes finished their conference schedule with just two losses and, just like last year, the Canes earned a No. 2 seed in the ACC Tournament.
Miami was one of four teams that were rewarded with a bye through the first round and will face No. 7 seed Wake Forest or No. in the quarterfinal round.
The Big Three With Big Honors
Shenise Johnson and Riquna Williams were both named first teamers. It was the third straight first team nod for Johnson – becoming just the 11th woman in ACC history to earn that distinction – and the second straight for Williams.
For her performance on the court this season, Stefanie Yderstrom was rewarded with third team recognition.
Before Stroman’s injury, Yderstrom averaged 9.1 points per game and scored in double figures in nine of 19 games. In the 10 games since, the Swede has scored in double digits eight times, twice setting her career high with 22 points vs. Virginia Tech and 26 at No. 8 Maryland. Over that span, the 5-8 guard has averaged 14.0 points and has connected on 22 three-pointers.
