University of Miami

The Heat aren’t the only dominant force on the courts in South Florida. The University of Miami basketball team has built up a reputation for being a powerhouse crew ever since joining Division 1 of the NCAA in 1985. Led by head coach Jim Larranaga, the University of Miami basketball team has taken itself to the Second Round of the National Invitation Tournament in the 2010-11 season, and finished on top of the Atlantic Coast Conference in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen in 2012-13.
