A-2,579. 4 By Jorge Milian Palm Beach Post Staff Writer MIAMI It's been 32 years since Miami has been nationally ranked, but the Hurricanes may be on the cusp of getting back into the polls. UM improved to 6-0 on Tuesday before 2,579 fans at Miami Arena by defeating Rutgers, 63-55, in the first Big East Conference game of the season for both teams. If the Hurricanes beat Georgetown at home Saturday night, UM will likely receive consideration for a national ranking. UM, which is off to its best start since the 1962-63 season, was last ranked were Norris, who finished with 15 points, and sophomore Lucas Barnes, who added 11. "We always had the attitude that we were going to win this game," Hamilton said. "I thought our team showed a lot of character down the stretch." The Hurricanes struggled most of the night against Rutgers (1-3), unable to manage a lead larger than six points until late in the game. The Scarlet Knights led by two points, 48-46, with 7:19 remaining in the game before Norris hit a running jumper then followed with a three-pointer. "We could have easily rolled over and lost tonight," Bland said. canes a 61-53 lead. "That killed us," Bannon said. "That was the difference in the game." Bland was the difference most of the night for UM, contributing a career-high 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting. His performance made up for a lackluster night from Tim James, who shot 2-of-15 from the field and finished with only eight points. "Tonight, we wanted Mario to step up and that's what he did," said Miami coach Leonard Hamilton, who has won six straight games for the first time in eight seasons at UM.
