Last night in the Ohio St/Miami game, Jack McClinton of Miami took a swing at Anthony Crater of Ohio St. Now, I don’t think it was an exceptionally vicious swipe, but it’s still something that shouldn’t have happened.
McClinton is clearly Miami’s best player and is one of the best guards in the country. I definitely think the result would’ve been different had he been on the floor in the second half (the game was on it’s way to getting out of hand when he was ejected).
Miami has 2 losses already with a road game coming up against Kentucky. It only has one game each against North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, and Clemson, teams considered to be the cream of the crop in the ACC.
The ‘Canes don’t have a lot of opportunities left for quality wins so that slap may have cost them a tournament berth. It’s only December 3, but I think they’re in trouble already. It’ll be interesting to see what the rest of the season has in store for Miami.
