Monday December 16, 2013Gators Move to No. 16 in AP Poll

Gainesville, Fla.

The University of Florida men’s basketball moved to No. 16 in the Associated Press Poll and to No. 17 the USA Today Coaches’ Poll this week.

Florida took care of No. 18 Kansas last week, 67-61, after a 21-0 run in the first half sparked the Gators momentum for the duration of the game. The Gators improved to 7-2 on the year, and 1-2 versus ranked teams. Both losses came as true road games to current No. 4 and No. 10.

Florida returns home on Dec. 29 to face Savannah State at 3 p.m. in the O’Connell Center. Fans can click here to view ticket options and purchase available tickets.
