Preview: UVa faces No. 2 Miami

Much was made on Monday afternoon when Joe Harris, who set career highs in scoring in consecutive games during the week and averaged 26.5 points while shooting 68 percent, wasn't chosen as the conference's player of the week.

But to hear Harris tell it after UVa's 93-81 loss to UNC on Saturday, he doesn't care how many points he scores or what other stats he compiles up as long as it means his team wins.

"I don't really care," a somewhat dismissive Harris said when asked about his 27-point scoring day at Carolina. "I would've rather won the game and scored like two points."

With all due respect, Harris is going to have to put up more than that when Virginia (18-7, 8-4 ACC) travels to Coral Gables for a matchup with No. 2 Miami (21-3, 12-0) tonight (9 p.m., ESPNU).
