MBB Checks in at No. 8 in National Polls

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami men’s basketball team rose to No. 8 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and USA TODAY Coaches Poll, as announced Monday afternoon.

The No. 8 ranking is the highest regular season ranking for the Hurricanes since Dec. 18, 2017, when Miami checked in at No. 6 and No. 7 in the AP poll and Coaches Poll, respectively. Miami was ranked third in the Coaches Poll in the final postseason ranking of the 2022-23 season.

Miami (5-0) has appeared in 18 straight AP polls, setting a new program record for consecutive weeks in the AP national rankings. The previous record was 17, set during the 2015-16 season. The 18-week-mark also ties the program record for consecutive appearances in the Coaches Poll.

Seventh-ranked Duke and No. 17 North Carolina join Miami in the AP Top-25, while Florida State is receiving votes in the poll.

The Hurricanes will head to Lexington, Ky., for their first true road contest of the season on Nov. 28, taking on No. 12 Kentucky in the inaugural ACC/SEC Challenge. Tipoff in Rupp Arena is set for 7:30 p.m. and the game will air on ESPN.
