Florida basketball had a light week of work, facing only the South Florida Bulls on Saturday and coming away with an unimpressive 66-55 win in the O’Connell Center. After a brilliant November that saw the Gators reach the top 20 in both major polls, things have fallen apart for Mike White‘s squad over the past month.

The 6-0 start has been tarnished by a 2-3 December — including a Quadrant 4 loss — and UF found itself in a free-fall from the polls. They were unable to gain any traction in Week 7, failing to net a single vote in the latest AP poll despite the win over USF.

Around the SEC, the Alamaba Crimson Tide leads the way at No. 10, while the Auburn Tigers are close behind at No. 12, then comes the LSU Tigers at No. 17, Tennessee Volunteers at No. 19 and Kentucky Wildcats are No. 21 to round out the conference members in the top 25; the Arkansas Razorbacks managed to get nine votes this week.
