CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - As a sixth-year senior, Miami Hurricanes center Julian Gamble says his team's ranking success takes a minute to sink in.
Miami was ranked behind only No. 1 Indiana and No. 2 Duke in Monday's poll, and received a school-record 17 first-place votes.
The Hurricanes (19-3, 10-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) had never previously been ranked higher than No. 8. Last week they achieved that spot for the first time since 1960.
Gamble and Miami's three other senior starters are well aware the program's in uncharted territory. The Hurricanes have already set a school record for ACC victories in a season, and the last time they received any votes for No. 1 was in March 1960.
They cracked the Top 25 just three weeks ago and have since enjoyed a rapid rise.
