LEXINGTON, Ky. - The University of Miami volleyball team bumped up one spot to No. 23 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Top 25 this week, the organization announced Monday. The Canes have now appeared in the national poll five times this season and will face No. 12 Florida State Friday at 1 p.m. for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship.

Miami (25-4, 17-2), who has won 15 of the last 16, defeated the Seminoles (26-3, 17-2) in four sets Sept. 7 in the first meeting between the teams. The match on Friday will be broadcast live by ESPN3, as the Canes will be looking to earn their first ACC title.

"It is going to be fun - Florida State is a great team and we know that," head coach Nicole Lantagne Welch said. "We had a great match with them earlier in the year and we are going to expect their best on Friday. In order to win, we will have to play at our very best. It is setting up for a great situation; everyone in our program is looking forward to it."

Most recently, the Canes swept both Boston College and Maryland over the weekend to finish a perfect 13-0 at home.

The No. 23 ranking ties for the highest mark this season for UM, reaching that high also on Oct. 29. The program has a 7-1 record as a ranked team this year.

No. 25 North Carolina joins the Hurricanes and Seminoles as ranked ACC teams.
