Canes draw No. 2 seed, FAU in NIT opener

The Miami Hurricanes have another home game.

Frank Haith's basketball team was selected Sunday night to the National Invitational Tournament as a No. 2 seed. UM (19-14) will host FAU (21-10) on Wednesday night at the BankUnited Center.

The Canes own a 19-1 all-time record versus the Owls, the only loss coming in overtime back on Dec. 3, 2002. UM beat FAU 87-69 the last time the teams met on Dec. 19, 2009.

The Owls are led by sophomore guards Greg Gantt (13.9 ppg) and Ray Taylor (11.7 ppg). 

If the Hurricanes win, they would potentially host the winner between No. 3 seed Missouri State (25-8) and No. 6 seed Murray State (23-8) in the next round.

The top seed in UM's bracket is Alabama.
