Florida, the overall No. 1 seed for the NCAA tournament, is on top of the AP’s final college basketball poll of the season.

The Gators (32-2) are No. 1 for the fourth straight week after capping the regular season with the Southeastern Conference tournament title. Florida, which has won 26 straight, received 50 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday.

The other No. 1 seeds are second through fourth. Wichita State (34-0) drew the other 15 first-place votes and is No. 2, followed by Virginia (28-6) and Arizona (30-4). Virginia jumped from sixth to third after winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament for the first time since 1976.

Louisville remained fifth and is followed by Villanova, Michigan, Duke, Iowa State and Kansas. Iowa State jumped from No. 16 to No. 9 after winning the Big 12 tournament.

UCLA, which won the Pac-12 tournament, and Baylor returned to the rankings this week. Memphis and SMU dropped out.
