Gators hoops slips a spot in ESPN’s updated 2025 bracketolgy

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi released his latest bracketology update on Tuesday with his most recent prognostications seeing quite a few moves.

The Florida Gators, who have been firmly in the mix this offseason, fell one spot this time around in the West Region — based in San Francisco — to a No. 7 seed. They are lined up with the No. 10 Maryland Terrapins in the opening round, while the No. 2 Baylor Bears and No. 15 Milwaukee Panthers in the other bracket played in Denver.

In Lunardi’s last submission, the Orange and Blue were a No. 6 seed in that same bracket.

Looking at the rest of the SEC,  the Alabama Crimson Tide are the No. 3 seed in the Midwest, followed by the Auburn Tigers (No. 3, West), Texas Longhorns (No. 4, East), Tennessee Volunteers (No. 4, South), Texas A&M Aggies (No. 5, West), Kentucky Wildcats (No. 8, East) and Mississippi State Bulldogs (No. 8, Midwest).

The Missouri Tigers are among the first four out.
