Canes won't be home for NIT

ATLANTA -- The Miami Hurricanes are heading home from the ACC Tournament. But they won't be there long.

When the NIT begins next week and the Hurricanes (18-12) receive their invite, they'll be going on the road. According to UM Director of Basketball Operations Daren Cohen, the Canes will not be able to play home games because the BankUnited Center has been rented out for a series of latin concerts.

Talk about a bummer. You go 18-12 and likely will be one of the top seeds of the tournament, but you'll have to win three games on the road to get to New York for the semifinals.
