Rankings from AP Poll

The 2013–14 American Athletic Conference men's basketball season took place between November 2013 and concluded in March 2014. Practices began in October 2013, with conference play beginning in December, and the season ended with the 2014 American Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament. The season was the first since the split of the original Big East Conference into two separate leagues.

This was the first season that Houston, Memphis, SMU, Temple, and UCF participated in American Athletic competition. It was also the final season for Louisville and Rutgers in Big East/AAC competition, as these schools left for the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big Ten Conference respectively.
