As the University of Miami Hurricanes overtook the Texas Longhorns on Sunday (March 26) to advance to the Final Four, the team knelt to express gratitude through prayer.
Beating the Longhorns by a score of 88-81, the Hurricanes will be making the first Final Four appearance in the school’s history. The victory is significant, especially given that the team lost in this same round of the NCAA March Madness tournament last year.
Immediately after recording the victory, a number of the Hurricanes players gathered in a circle and dropped to their knees to pray. The prayer of gratitude was led by Nicaraguan-born third-year sophomore Norchad Omier.
“Thank you for bringing us here,” Omier prayed. Following Omier’s prayer, the team stood and cheered to celebrate their victory.
