Arizona received 63-of-65 first-place votes from the AP voters and 30-of-32 first-place votes from the coaches.
The Florida Gators (7-2), fresh off an impressive 67-61 victory over then-No. 13 Kansas (6-3) on Tuesday in Gainesville, FL, jumped up three spots to No. 16 in the AP top 25 and two places to No. 17 in the USA Today rankings.
Florida checked in with 699 points (+265) in the AP poll and 296 points (+38) in the USA Today top 25.
