Gators fall three spots to No. 11 in latest AP poll



After going 1-1 last week, Florida fell three spots to No. 11 in this week's Associated Press men's basketball poll.

The Gators fell three spots to No. 9 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Florida lost 64-58 at Tennessee last week, then defeated Alabama at home on Saturday to clinch at least a share of the SEC Championship.

Florida's drop in the AP poll once again highlights the weakness of the SEC this season. The Gators are one spot behing No. 10 Michigan State, which is on a three-game losing streak, but plays in the much-stronger Big Ten.

The Gators (23-5, 13-3) will play their regular-sason home finale on Wednesday vs. Vanderbilt at 8 p.m.
