Florida fails to garner any votes in latest AP Poll
Once again Florida basketball was omitted from the Associated Press Poll following its loss to the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville on Saturday — the third in a row and sixth of the last seven for Todd Golden’s gang. With just two games remaining on the regular season slate, it does not appear that the Gators will gain any ground this season either.
The Orange and Blue also finds itself voteless in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll and nowhere to be found in the many various bracketologies and bubble watches. Even a late-season run with some success in the Southeastern Conference Tournament is unlikely to help this Colin Castleton-less team.
Next on the schedule for Florida are the Georgia Bulldogs, who host the Gators on Tuesday night inside Stegeman Coliseum in Athens, Georgia. UGA is currently ranked No. 145 in the NET, No. 137 in ESPN’s BPI and No. 142 in KenPom and beat UF in their meeting earlier this season in Gainesville, 82-75. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. EST and the game can be watched on the SEC Network or heard on the Gator Sports Network.
