Miami, Xavier look to refocus after narrow 1st-round escapes

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — If Miami’s Jim Larrañaga and Xavier’s Sean Miller didn’t have their players’ complete attention heading into the NCAA Tournament, they do now. Larrañaga’s Hurricanes and Miller’s Musketeers both needed huge second-half comebacks against lower-seeded opponents in the first round. Both coaches are pleading with their players to value every possession and avoid mental lapses. Xavier is the No. 3 seed in the Midwest Region and faces 11th-seeded Pittsburgh in the second round in Greensboro, North Carolina. Miami is the 5 seed and is preparing for fourth-seeded Indiana in Albany, New York.
