Florida's four-game winning streak impressed the voters on the weekly Associated Press men's college basketball poll enough today to jump the Gators three spots to No. 14.

The Gators, who were at No. 17, knocked off South Carolina and Tennessee last week to improve to 20-5 overall.

Florida has an open week from SEC play this week and returns to action Sunday at LSU.

Kansas jumped over Ohio State for the top spot in the poll: No. 1 Kansas, then it's Ohio State, Texas, Pittsburgh and Duke in the Top 5.
