Monday February 17, 2014Florida Earns No. 2 Spot in Both Polls

Gainesville, Fla.

The Florida men’s basketball team broke into the No. 2 spot in both the Associated Press poll and the USA Today Coaches’ poll this week.

The Gators won on the road at Tennessee and at No. 18 Kentucky last week, marking the first time since 1988 that UF has done so in the same season. With the win at Rupp Arena, Florida snapped UK’s 22-game home winning streak and improved their own win streak to 17 games, tied for the longest in program history. The Gators’ 12-0 SEC record is the best league start ever for Florida.

Florida will return home this Wednesday, Feb. 19, to face Auburn at 7 p.m. in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center. Fans can click here to view ticket options and purchase available tickets.
