On Friday, men’s basketball upset Fordham University by the score of 55-54 in Miami’s season opener. Entering this matchup, Fordham was favored by nine and coming off a CIT Tournament appearance last year. The RedHawks started the contest flat, finding themselves down 25-21 at the end of the first. Only making 19.5 percent of their field goal attempts. However, the team showed resiliency in the second.
