Florida Rises to #1 in Men's Basketball AP Poll
Published February 24th, 2014
Florida has ascended to #1 in the polls for the first time since the 2007 coaches postseason poll. The last time UF was #1 during the season was the week of Feb. 12, 2007. Florida holds a 15-5 record as the #1 team in the nation, and this marks the fourth different season in which UF has attained the top spot.
In 2006-07, UF spent eight weeks as the #1 team, going 14-2. The Gators reached #1 one week in two other seasons, going 1-1 in 2002-03 and 0-2 in 2003-04.
This is the latest in the season, not counting the postseason coaches poll, that Florida has held the #1 ranking. Florida’s last game played as the #1 team was an 83-70 loss at Vanderbilt on Feb. 17, 2007.
