After dropping a 67-61 effort to Kansas State last Saturday, the Florida Gators subsequently dropped out of the top-10 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Polls, which were released on Monday.The Gators managed to only slip from No. 9 to No. 11 in the Coaches Poll, but took a big tumble from No. 8 to No. 14 in the AP’s poll.
While Kansas State remained unranked in the Coaches Poll, their victory over the Gators was enough to propel them to the No. 25 slot in the AP.
The Gators now turn their focus to 8-2 Air Force who they will play in Sunrise (Fla.) at the annual MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. EST.
