MBB Ranked No. 14 in AP Poll, No. 15 in USA TODAY

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami men’s basketball team made a historic climb in the national polls Monday.

Fresh off dominant victories over No. 1 Duke and in-state rival Florida State, Miami is ranked No. 14 in the latest edition of the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 15 in the USA TODAYCoaches rankings.

"It is wonderful that the pollsters have selected us in the top 15 schools in the country at this point in our season," said Coach Jim Larranaga. "Our players have worked very hard to achieve certain goals and being ranked was one of them. However, it is still very early in the conference race with 12 games still remaining. Our goal is really to be at our best at the end of February and throughout March."

The Canes jumped 11 spots in the AP Poll and entered the USA TODAY poll for the first time since December 2008.

According to the Associated Press, Miami’s climb in the AP Poll is tied for the second-largest since the poll expanded to 25 teams in 1989-90. Arizona holds the record for the biggest rise, jumping 15 spots in November 1995.

Miami's 6-0 start in the ACC is its best conference start in program history. The Canes take their seven-game winning streak to Blacksburg, Va., to face the Virginia Tech Hokies on Wednesday.
