Gators prepare for North Florida with short turnaround



Fresh off its 81-74 loss to Ohio State, Florida will return to the court on Thursday night to host North Florida.

Because of heavy fog in the Columbus, Ohio area, the Gators were unable to fly home Tuesday night. They returned on Wednesday afternoon.

"When you've got a one-day prep like this, there's a balance between how much prep work you do and how much you try to work on yourself,'' Florida coach Billy Donovan said. "You've also got to look at the minutes that certain guys logged during the course of the game, the travel. But I don't think there's any reason why our guys should not be physically, mentally and emotionally ready to play.''
