CORAL GABLES, Fla -- A daunting Atlantic Coast Conference schedule requires fearlessness and poise, attributes often associated with beloved superheroes.
Sebastian the Ibis led cheers in a Superman costume. Two girls donned orange and green capes with No. 15 on the back in honor of senior guard Rion Brown. A group of friends dressed up as the Justice League and Buzz Lightyear.
A record 1,706 students showed up, and the first 500 received a special UM-themed superhero T-shirt. Those in the student section also were given Band-Aids to wear on their face for Brown, who got cut near his left eye during the Hurricanes' 63-57 victory last Wednesday at North Carolina.
Miami (9-6, 1-2) is the ACC's reigning regular-season and tournament champion.
