CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami is back in a familiar spot -- the top 25.
The Hurricanes (25-12, 10-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) are ranked No. 22 in the Collegiate Baseball poll released Monday.
It is the first time the Hurricanes have been ranked under first-year head coach Gino DiMare.
Miami was 5-0 last week, beating Florida Gulf Coast in a pair of midweek games before sweeping Virginia in ACC play.
"We talked about it before the series began, that now is the time to make a move," DiMare said. "We have been sitting kind of on the outside, looking in, in terms of rankings, and our goal is to try and host. Nobody is giving us a chance to host, but if we make a really, really good run here, we will have a chance to do that."
The Hurricanes are ranked for the first time since February 2018.
Miami hosts Florida Gulf Coast again Tuesday before a three-game series at No. 8 Louisville.
