▶Florida is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press poll, the Gators' first time on top of the rankings since they repeated as national champions in 2007. Despite moving up in the AP TOP 25 Poll, however, the ESPN BPI INDEX (right inset) ranks the Gators at #2.  See the AP poll graphic below.

▶Wichita State (29-0) and Arizona (25-2) each moved up one place to second and third, respectively.

Florida, the fifth team to hold the No. 1 spot this season, received 47 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Wichita State was No. 1 on 14 ballots, and Arizona got the other four first-place votes.
According to this source, Florida coach Billy Donovan wasn't impressed with the top ranking. Coach Donovan has ample experience with teams that looked exceptional on paper, but failed to go deep in the NCAA FINAL FOUR.  But he is also the last major college coach to take a team to back-to-back wins in the NCAA Division 1. That feat was accomplished in 2006 and 2007.
▶Kansas jumped three places to fifth and was followed by DukeLouisvilleVillanovaCreighton and Saint Louis.
