The Hurricanes will play game two of their seven-game homestand Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 7:00 p.m. against the Sun Devils of Arizona State at the BankUnited Center.
Miami and Arizona State have had two prior meetings, with the Sun Devils victorious both times. However, their combined margin of victory has been just six total points. The last game between the teams was last season, when Arizona State defeated Miami 75-73 on Dec. 21, 2013 in Tempe, Ariz.
WVUM 90.5 FM will have the call for the game and it will also be streamed online at WVUM.org. Live video will be available through Canes All Access. Jeff Munn of the Sun Devil Sports Network will broadcast the game as well.
Head coach Katie Meier’s team features eight returnees, including starters Keyona Hayes, Suriya McGuire and Adrienne Motley. Redshirt freshman Nigia Greene and redshirt junior Michelle Woods are also back after missing the 2013-14 season due to injury and have combined for 43 points in Miami’s first three games.
Five new faces join the Hurricanes, with a mix of local, national, and international talent. The team’s newcomers include freshmen Erykah Davenport, Aisha Edwards, Keyanna Harris, Khaila Prather, and Laura Quevedo.
Katie Meier is in her tenth year at the helm in Coral Gables, and is looking to build upon the team’s many recent successes. The Hurricanes have made five consecutive postseason appearances, three in the NCAA Tournament and two in the WNIT, and have also had over 20 wins in four of the past five seasons. Meier holds a career record of 241-167, including a record of 165-122 at Miami.
