Gator women preparing for battle against No. 5 Tennessee



The Florida women's basketball team will host No. 5 Tennessee Thursday night in the O'Connell Center, most likely the biggest home game of the season for the Gators.

The Gator players believe an important part of their preparation is keeping the game in persepective and not getting too caught up in the hype. Three of the last four games between the two teams have been decided by single digits, and the Gators defeated the Vols in the O'Dome in 2009. Last season, a layup with 2.5 seconds remaining in the game earned the Vols a two-point victory.

Listen to junior center Azania Stewart and junior guard Jordan Jones talk about the team's preparations and what they expect from the game against the Vols.
