CORAL GABLES, Fla. -

The Miami Hurricanes basketball team is getting serious respect with the oddsmakers.

Online oddsmaker Sportsbook.com has slashed the Canes odds of winning the NCAA title.

Before UM beat Duke and FSU, they were 80-to-1 to win it all.

They are now 25-to-1.

The team is also vaulting up the polls, surging to #14 in the Associated Press poll this week. They were ranked #25 last week.
