Monday December 23, 2013Gators Jump to No. 13/14 in Week Eight Polls

Gainesville, Fla.

The University of Florida men’s basketball team jumped three spots to No. 13 in the Associated Press Poll and to No. 14 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll this week.

Florida improved their mark to 9-2 on the year after victories over No. 17 Memphis and Fresno State during the week. With the win over Memphis, the Gators defeated consecutive top-15 ranked non-conference opponents for the first time in head coach Billy Donovan’s tenure. UF has notched back-to-back wins over top-15 ranked teams four times now, including three-straight games in the 2007 NCAA Tournament and the 2001 SEC season and also in two consecutive games in the 2000 NCAA Tournament.

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.
