Virginia's Mike Scott watched in street clothes last season as Miami twice rallied late in games to beat the Cavaliers, including a stunning comeback from 10 points down in 40 seconds in the ACC tournament.
It didn't take long for Miami guard Malcolm Grant to learn something significant about his new coach.
Virginia guard Jontel Evans made a single misjudgment on an inbound pass, incorrectly figuring Mustapha Farrakhan would stay in one place. On its own, it would seem like no big deal. Put in context as the latest piece of the Cavaliers' massive last-minute meltdown, it was the final part of Miami's comeback from 10 points down with less than 40 seconds remaining.
Malcolm Grant scored 22 points to lead Miami to a 94-59 victory over Pepperdine on Thursday night.
"One thing I've learned is that with all his stories, there's always a message to it," Grant said.
"I think we're going to be a scary team," Grant said. "A lot of people know that we're a good team and we're talented, but we haven't been able to get over the hump. I think Coach L is the key for us to get over the hump."
