CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team was listed in the receiving votes category of the final USA Today Coaches Poll of the 2014-15 season.

Miami (20-13, 8-8 ACC) made its fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last five seasons and received an 11-seed in the Oklahoma City Region. The Hurricanes knocked off sixth-seeded Washington, 86-80, in the first round in Iowa City, Iowa.
First Team All-ACC selection Adrienne Motley, a sophomore guard, led all scorers with 30 points in the victory.
The win over the Huskies made Katie Meier the first head coach in program history to guide Miami to NCAA Tournament victories in three different seasons.
The Hurricanes advanced to the postseason for the sixth consecutive season, doubling the previous longest streak in team history. Miami also won 20-plus games for the fifth time in the last six seasons.
