NCAA Basketball Rankings: Florida Drops To No. 13

The Florida Gators' surprising loss to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights dropped them to No. 13 in the AP Top 25 poll.

The Florida Gators dipped to No. 13 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll, which was released Monday. That they fell from No. 11 cames as no surprise, as they lost to the unranked Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 85-83, in double-overtime last Thursday. Eli Carter nailed the go-ahead basket for Rutgers with 3:02 to play, and then put it up four points with another jumper a little more than a minute later. Kenny Boynton scored 26 points in defeat.

The Gators got back on track with a 90-70 win against the Yale Elis on Saturday, improving their record to 11-3. Boynton scored 26 points once again to lead four Gators in double figures.

Unsurprisingly, the Syracuse Orange (15-0) lead the AP Poll for the fourth straight week. The Kentucky Wildcats, North Carolina Tar Heels, Baylor Bears, and Duke Blue Devils round out the top five. Syracuse garnered 60 of a possible 65 first-place votes. The Ohio State Buckeyes, who ranked No. 2 in the previous week, dropped to No. 6 following their loss to the Indiana Hoosiers.
