The Florida men’s basketball team rose one spot to No. 6 in the Associated Press poll and the USA Today Coaches’ Poll this week.

The Gators have won nine-straight after victories over Georgia and Auburn. Florida scooted to a 72-50 advantage over the Bulldogs to achieve a new school record of 25 consecutive home wins on Tuesday night, the second best mark in the nation as Duke and Stephen F. Austin are tied with 26.
