Florida State men’s basketball has moved up to No. 5 in the latest AP poll that was released on Monday afternoon, continuing a strong push that began with the Seminoles being ranked in the preseason.
Baylor is the No. 1 team, followed by Gonzaga, Kansas and San Diego State.
It is the highest ranking for FSU since Dec. 1972. The Seminoles were as high as No. 6 in January 2017.
The Seminoles (16-2) were ranked ninth the previous poll but have moved up on the performances of the last week, which includes a home win over Virginia and a road victory over Miami.
FSU entered the rankings at 17th on Dec. 2 and has steadily climbed. The Seminoles entered the top 10 on Jan. 2.
Next up for FSU is a game on Saturday against Notre Dame at 8 p.m.
