Even trailing Eastern Michigan by 20 points five minutes into the second half on Saturday night, Miami (Ohio) players insist they believed a comeback was still possible.
"I remember Nick (Winbush) told us, 'This team doesn't know how to win. We're not out of it,'" freshman forward Jon Harris said by phone. "Our goal was to chip away each four minutes. We were playing hard and we were getting stops, but we just couldn't make a shot. We knew if we could put some points on the board, we could come back."
