Monday January 27, 2014Gators Crack AP Top-Five, Check in at No. 3

Gainesville, Fla.

The Florida men’s basketball team cracked the top-five in rankings for the first time this season, checking in at No. 3 in the Associated Press poll and No. 4 in the USA Today Coaches’ poll.

The Gators have won 11-straight and are 6-0 in conference play, standing alone at the top as the league’s only unbeaten team.

Florida handled business at Alabama last Thursday, defeating the Crimson Tide 68-62 and improved to a 3-0 SEC road record. Breaking a three-game losing streak to the Volunteers, Florida shut down Tennessee 67-41 on Saturday. The Gators held Tennessee to 1-of-19 shooting from beyond the arc as Florida extended their home-winning streak to a school-record 26 games.  

Returning to the road, Florida will play at Mississippi State on Thursday and then host Texas A&M on Saturday, Feb.1. Fans can click here to view ticket options and purchase available tickets.
