Miami has not made the NCAA tournament since 2013. It finished last season with a 25–13 record before making a run to the National Invitation Tournament title game. The Hurricanes improved to 4–0 after downing Texas Rio Grande Valley, Louisiana Lafayette and Mississippi State in their first three games.

Utah dropped its first game of the year after getting off to a 3–0 start with victories over Southern Utah, San Diego State and Texas Tech. It will look to rebound at home against Idaho State on Nov. 27.
