Sanogo is posting 17.1 ppg and he also leads the Huskies in rebounds with 7.5 boards an outing. Hawkins is a sharpshooter on the perimeter, getting 16.3 points and shoots almost 40% from three points range. He is just above his average, averaging over 17 points points in the tournament. Sanogo started the tournament with 28 points against Iona, and 24 against St. Mary’s. He had 10 last game, but the game was well in hand against a Zags team that struggled all night.

Miami's last game

Miami didn’t have a bad first half against Texas, but the Longhorns caught fire at the end of the fist half, and built up an eight point lead. Their top scorer Isaiah Wong had yet to get going. Texas looked like they were going to take control in the second half, but Wong got going, and Jordan Miller had a perfect night from the field and from the line in his 27 point effort. The Longhorns went cold at the end of the game, scoring just six points in the final four minutes of the game and the Hurricanes advanced to the semis for the first time in program history.

Last game UCONN

They held the Zags to 2-20 from downtown, and 33.3% from the field as Jordan Hawkins had 20 points to lead the Huskies in the blowout win.

How they got here: UCONN
