She revealed, ‘”I think that Miami, the community and the university, the diversity is something I’m quite proud of,” Meier said. “There’s a lot of different cultures, people are raised in different ways and there’s a real blending of all our differences.

Race, religion, all of that, we’re going to be a place that welcomes you and celebrates it.”
Katie Meier has made headlines for an incredible comeback to overcome Oklahoma State in the NCAA.
Tournament’s First Round was held on Saturday, March 18, 2023. The legendary head coach of the Hurricanes, Katie Meier, got away with a vital late-game technical foul.
She pulled Chris Webber.
Webber called the most controversial timeout in collegiate basketball history on April 5, 1993. When Webber attempted to use a timeout, Michigan had none left.
Therefore, he was called for a technical foul, which handed North Carolina the ball and two shots, and the Wolverines lost after being unable to rebound.
Miami was down 37-20 at the half on Saturday. Afterward, the story was entirely turned around.
The Hurricanes battled back with a 20-7 third quarter and prevailed by one point thanks to a solid second half from team captain and leading scorer Haley Cavinder. The final ten seconds were crazy.
With her crew of two, Cavinder was waiting in line. She made two free throws to increase her lead to four points. With 8.9 seconds left, Miami led 62-58.
The Cowgirls deposited a triple on their subsequent possession. 4.9 seconds later, their deficit was reduced to one. Things became intriguing at this point.
Miami was unable to inbound the ball. Therefore the referee called a five-second penalty, negating Miami’s possession and returning the ball to Oklahoma State. Meier was indignant.
She argued that before the five-second violation, she had requested a timeout, and it turned out for the best that the official refused to give it to her.
Even though Meier begged for the call, it was best if her team did not incur a timeout penalty since it was out of timeouts.
The Hurricanes would have been assessed a technical foul had Meier’s requested timeout been approved. Similar to Webber in 1993.
The ball and two free throw opportunities would have been delivered to the Cowgirls, and they get the chance to seize the initiative and keep control.
Instead, only 5.3 seconds of possession were given to Oklahoma State—zero foul shots.
The buzzer-beater missed, and Miami was able to get away.
