WBB Ranked No. 19/16 in National Polls
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team is once again in the top 20 of both major polls.
Miami (24-8, 12-4 ACC) comes in at No. 19 in the Associated Press Poll, revealed Monday, and No. 16 in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll, announced Tuesday.
The Hurricanes played just once last week, dropping a 92-85 decision to then-No. 18/16 Syracuse in the ACC Tournament quarterfinals Friday in Greensboro, N.C. Fourth-seeded Miami rallied back from a 16-point deficit to take a fourth-quarter lead before the fifth-seeded Orange earned the victory.
In the AP Poll, the Hurricanes registered 234 points and dropped three spots from their No. 16 spot a week ago. The complete poll can be found HERE.
Miami fell just one spot in the Coaches Poll, recording 301 points, a slight 25-point decrease from last week. The entire list is available HERE.
The ACC yet again has six teams ranked in each poll, as Miami joins third-ranked Notre Dame, fifth-ranked Louisville, No. 10 NC State, No. 15/14 Syracuse and No. 25/22 Florida State.
Miami is currently awaiting word on its NCAA Tournament location and seed, which it will learn March 18 during ESPN’s selection show, which begins at 7 p.m.
