There was once a time when the Florida Gators seemed to be a solid bet for a No. 1 seed at the NCAA Tournament. They were rated as one of the best offensive and defensive teams in the country by Kenpom, and with a lackluster SEC schedule on the horizon, many felt UF would cruise through conference play.
That has not been the case the past month, with Florida dropping four of their last 10 games. Their projected seeding for March Madness has taken a hit as a result.
In the latest bracketology update from Chris Dobbertean of SB Nation, the Gators are currently a No. 3 seed in the South Region. They would play Davidson first, and assuming they weren't upset, they'd play the winner of Memphis and St. Mary's for a chance to advance to the Sweet 16.
Joe Lunardi of ESPN seems a similar fate. UF would take on South Dakota State in the No. 3 vs. No. 14 matchup, and then play the winner of UNLV and Iowa State in the third round.
Florida is also a No. 3 seed in Jerry Palm of CBS Sports' latest update.
