Grant Williams scored 16 points as No. 1 Tennessee defeated Florida 73-61 to complete a season sweep of the Gators and extend its school-record winning streak to 18 games.

Tennessee owns the longest active winning streak of any Division I team. Florida lost its third straight.

Duke, Tennessee, Virginia and Gonzaga are the top seeds in the NCAA Division I Basketball Committee’s initial rankings.

The Volunteers are No. 1 in the AP Top 25, but committee chairman Bernard Muir says the committee chose Duke as the top seed based upon strength of schedule.

Selection Sunday is March 17.
