For years, Miami’s basketball program was often thrilled to draw more than a handful of fans to watch some of the Hurricanes’ biggest ACC games. When the team returned to the BankUnited Center from Saturday’s last-second win over N.C. State, late into the evening, there were fans at the arena to celebrate a game played somewhere else.

“As the bus pulled in, there was a group of students there to greet us,” Miami coach Jim Larranaga said Monday. “There are a lot of people pulling for our team, a lot of enthusiasm on campus and in the community.”

Miami is trying to stay focused after matching the highest ranking in school history.

Next up is last-place Boston College, which nearly won last month's meeting.

The No. 8 Hurricanes are perfect at home as they try for a 10th straight victory overall Tuesday night against an Eagles team that could again be pesky.

Miami (17-3, 8-0) reached the eighth spot in the Top 25 one other time, on March 1, 1960. The Hurricanes are off to the best ACC start by any team since Duke began 10-0 five seasons ago.
