@CanesWBB Ranked No. 22 in Both Polls
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Following the first weekend of action in the 2016-17 season, the University of Miami women’s basketball team stayed in the top 25 of both major national polls.
The Hurricanes are ranked No. 22 in the Associated Press Poll, released Monday, and are also No. 22 in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll, released Tuesday. Miami (1-1) is the highest-ranked one-loss team in the AP Poll.
Miami began its campaign by falling at Kentucky, then No. 19 in both polls and now ranked No. 15/19, in the lone top-25 matchup in the country on the first night of the season.
After falling to the Wildcats, the Hurricanes returned to the court two days later in Lexington, Ky., and notched a 77-53 victory against Albany.
Miami is one of five ACC schools in the top 25 of each poll, joining top-ranked Notre Dame, No. 5/6 Louisville, No. 12/12 Florida State and No. 14/14 Syracuse.
The Hurricanes are set to host Charlotte in their home opener Wednesday at 7 p.m., at the Watsco Center.
