Pick

Both of these teams come into this game after winning three of their last four games, but Indiana looked like the much better team in the first round. Miami got very lucky to beat Drake and did not look good, but they are very talented and I think they will be play much better here. The Hurricanes did not get very much from their leading scorer, Isaiah Wong, but they were still able to get the victory. I think we see a better effort from Wong in this game and I like Miami to win.
