USA TODAY Sports Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll Wk 10


Florida basketball finally got in the Southeastern Conference win column on Saturday on the road against the South Carolina Gamecocks after dropping its first three games of league play for its worst SEC start since the early 80s. Despite the solid victory, the voters in the USA TODAY Sports Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll for Week 10 saw no reason to add the Gators to their ballots.

Since the last poll update, UF beat USC but also lost one at home against a short-handed LSU Tigers in a game that Florida had plenty of chances to win but ultimately seized defeat from the jaws of victory. Now after four games played, the Gators sit at 1-3 in conference play with a stretch of four games in eight days coming up.

Speaking of the SEC, the Auburn Tigers climbed up to No. 2 this week and are a threat to take the top spot any time now, while the Kentucky Wildcats come in at No. 12, LSU at No. 16, and the Tennessee Volunteers the final spot at No. 25. The Alabama Crimson Tide was the only other conference school to earn votes after dropping out of the top 25.
