Miami vs Texas Prediction | Elite 8 March Madness Expert Picks
These two schools have put on clinics in the NCAA Tournament of how to win games. What is interesting about Texas’ run is that they are doing it without their original head coach at the beginning of the season. Rodney Terry stepped in in the middle of the season to replace Chris Beard and it is pretty obvious that the players have bought into Terry’s system. On Miami’s side, Jim Larranaga once again has proved why he is one of the best coaches in the country, with his second straight Elite 8 appearance.
Miami was able to outshoot the Houston Cougars, something that they may find difficult to do in this game, due to Texas’ better offensive talent. The Longhorns score the 25th most points per game this season, led by Marcus Carr. Texas has also shot over 40% from the three-point line in their last three games.
We said the same thing about Miami last game, in that Houston’s defense will overwhelm their offense. That was not the case whatsoever. Nijel Pack was able to shoot the lights out in that game. That could happen again in this game, especially with the up-tempo guard play from Isiah Wong. Miami took down one juggernaut, why can’t they do it again?

For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives Texas a 77.2% chance to win.
