Canes Beat Indiana At The Line

Miami won tonight's game at the free throw line where they held a 20-12 advantage over the Hoosiers. After being tied at the half, Miami controlled much of the second half and held on at the end for a big win over a quality opponent. Miami could break into the top 25 for the first time this year in the next poll.

Overall it was a dismal shooting performance for both teams as they both shot 33% from the field. James Jones lead the way with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Darius Rice and John Salmons added 12 points each.

Tom Coverdale lead the scoring for Indiana with 16 points but his first free throw miss of the year was an importnat one as it came in the closing minutes. Miami cleared the rebound and was able to hold on the rest of the way.

Miami is now 9-0 which is their best start in school history. They will try to break that record this coming Tuesday against Florida A&M.
