Latest in hoops: Top 25 (and one) | Bracketology | Bubble Watch

The Gators ran the SEC table, going 18-0, and continued a winning streak that spanned most of December, all of January, all of February and will now carry into the second week of March. So Florida Gators of course is the No. 1-ranked team yet again.

Undefeated Wichita State Shockers is second in the AP poll, now at 34-0. Syracuse has fallen out of the top 10 for the first time this season.

Louisville Cardinals 's 11-to-5 and Oklahoma Sooners 's 23-to-17 moves were the biggest jumps in this week's AP poll. SMU clinging to the 25th spot, falling from No. 18, was the biggest drop. The Mustangs lost two games last week.

Ohio State's big home win Sunday over Michigan State propelled the Buckeyes back into the fold.
