CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team is ranked among the top 25 teams in the country this week in both The Associated Press Poll and the USA TODAY Coaches Poll.

The Hurricanes check in at No. 21 in both major polls. Miami (22-7, 10-6 ACC) has been nationally ranked for 11 of the past 12 weeks.

In Monday’s release of the AP Poll, Miami earned 150 points in the voting and was ranked as high as No. 17 by three voters.

In the Coaches Poll released Tuesday, the Hurricanes got 176 points in the balloting. Miami has been ranked in the top 22 of the Coaches Poll in 12 of the past 13 weeks.

Miami is one of five ACC teams in the top 25 of both major polls, along with No. 2/3 Notre Dame, No. 7/6 Louisville, No. 14/10 Florida State and No. 17/17 Syracuse. Those four teams will receive double byes in this week’s ACC Tournament, while Miami finished just behind them at fifth in the conference and earned a one-round bye.
