CORAL GABLES, Fla. – For the second time in less than a week, the University of Miami women’s basketball team has been ranked in a preseason poll. This time the Canes enter the season No. 23 as announced Tuesday by the USA Today Sports/ESPN Top 25 Coaches’ Poll.

On Saturday, the Hurricanes were voted the nation’s 24th-best team by the Associated Press pollsters. 

Miami returns two All-ACC players in Stefanie Yderstrom and Morgan Stroman. Each was named to the conference's third team, Stroman in 2011 and Yderstrom in 2012.

UM also will see the addition of three freshman that made up a signing class that ranked 19th according to ESPNU Hoop Gurlz.

Caprice Dennis (5-9, G, Detroit, Mich.), Keyona Hayes (6-1, F, Marietta, Ga.) and Macy Keen (6-6, C, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) will each look to make an immediate impact in their first collegiate season.

The Canes will face five teams that are ranked in the AP Top 25 poll, including No. 3 Duke, No. 5 Maryland, No. 8 Penn State, No. 16 Tennessee, and No. 20 Georgia Tech. Miami will play Duke and Georgia Tech two times each during the regular season.

Miami welcomes Nova Southeastern for an exhibition game at the BankUnited Center on Nov. 5 at 7:05 p.m. The regular season gets underway on Nov. 9 when the Canes face North Florida in Coral Gables at 8 p.m.

The Hurricanes' general admission season ticket prices remain at just $50, while reserved courtside seats are available for only $75.

Katie Meier's Canes welcome 18 teams to the BankUnited Center this upcoming season. That's less than $3 per game! Traditional ACC powers Duke and North Carolina, in addition to national staples Tennessee and Penn State will pay a visit to Coral Gables.
