The Gators (27-2), who are on a school-record 21-game winning streak, were a solid No. 1 Monday, receiving 46 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel.
Wichita State (31-0), the first team since Saint Joseph's in 2004 to enter its conference tournament undefeated, was No. 1 on 14 ballots, while Arizona (27-2), which was ranked No. 1 for eight weeks earlier this season, got the other five first-place votes.
Duke moved up two spots to fourth while Virginia, which won its first outright Atlantic Coast Conference title since 1981, jumped from 12th to fifth, the Cavaliers' first Top Ten appearance since 2002.
