Coming off of yet another disappointing loss, the Yellow Jackets are looking to get back on track as they take on the No. 17 Miami Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes have had a solid season, thus far, at 17-4 (6-3 ACC). The team features a good offense that averages 78.8 points per game. The defense is giving up 66.1 points per game.

The offense is led by the play of four players who average 10 or more points per game, with redshirt-senior Sheldon McClellan leading the way with 16.1 points per game, while shooting 52.7 percent from the floor. He's also a solid 3-point shooter (31-for-80).

Senior center Tonye Jekiri is also a major player for the Hurricanes. Jekiri, though he is one of the players not averaging 10 or more points per game, is still averaging a solid 8.0 points per game, while shooting 54.6 percent from the floor. He also brings a ton of value in the paint, as he is also the team-leader in rebounds with 9.9 per game. He also leads the team in offensive (63) and defensive (144) rebounds.

Joining these two in the starting line-up (assuming they use the same line-up from their previous game) will be junior Davon Reed (10.3 ppg || 43.3 percent shooting || 4.2 rpg), redshirt-senior Angel Rodriguez (11.7 ppg || 41.5 percent shooting || 4.1 apg) and redshirt-junior Kamari Murphy (5.9 ppg || 49 percent shooting || 5.4 rpg).

Game Time: 1:00 p.m. EST
