Miami Moves to #17 in USCHO Poll
Miami’s sweep of then #8 Western Michigan has helped move Miami up three spots in this week’s USCHO poll where they check in at #17.
Based on the way the RedHawks (14-10-2, 10-8-2-1 CCHA) are playing, they’re probably underrated, which is just fine. They do, however, check in at #14 in the Inside College Hockey Power Rankings which said this about the RedHawks:
Reilly Smith is officially on fire: the junior wing scored all of Miami’s goals in Friday’s 3-1 win against visiting Western Michigan and added another in Saturday’s 4-0 RedHawk win. Smith has six goals and two assists in his last five games.
Miami is still unranked in the 15-team USA TODAY/USA Hockey poll.
This weekend, Miami seeks to rebound from a December series sweep at the hands of #19 Northern Michigan (11-8-5, 6-7-5-2 CCHA) as they venture south to take on the RedHawks Friday and Saturday at Steve Cady Arena.
