Gators fall in polls after loss

Florida comes in at No. 12 in the final Coaches' Poll and No. 14 in the Associated Press Poll before the start of the NCAA Tournament this week.

The Gators are the only Southeastern Conference team in the rankings after going 2-1 last week in the conference tournament. Florida dropped because of its loss to Ole Miss in the SEC tournament final.

According to the Coaches' Poll rankings, the Gators have wins over No. 16 Marquette and No. 17 Wisconsin while suffering losses to No. 14 Kansas State and No. 20 Arizona.

Florida starts NCAA Tournament play on Friday at 7:27 p.m. against Northwestern State.
