Basketball preview: Florida at Tennessee


No. 8 Florida at Tennessee

When/where: 9; Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, Tenn.

TV/radio: ESPN; 620-AM

Records: Florida 22-4, 12-2 SEC; Tennessee 16-10, 8-6

Notable: The Vols are coming off a four-overtime victory over Texas A&M on Saturday in which three players were on the court for at least 48 minutes and a fourth played more than 40. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said he planned to practice the team for about only an hour on Monday — no contact. … Florida has lost six of its past seven games at Thompson-Boling Arena. Even the Gators' national title teams didn't win there. Now Florida goes in without Will Yeguete (knee) and Michael Frazier II (concussion), hoping to get something productive from its three little-used freshmen.
