College basketball game capsule: No. 12 Florida Gators at Georgia Bulldogs, 4 p.m. Saturday

No. 12 Florida at Georgia

When/where: 4; Stegeman Coliseum, Athens, Ga.

TV/radio: Ch. 38; 620-AM

Records: Florida 22-6, 10-3 SEC; Georgia 12-15, 3-10

Notable: Florida has won 15 of its past 17 against the Bulldogs and enters having won four of its past five on the road. … Gerald Robinson leads the Bulldogs at 14.2 points per game, and Donte' Williams is their leading rebounder at 5.5 per game. … The Gators play their first game without sophomore F Will Yeguete, who broke his foot Tuesday against Auburn and is out for the season. Florida coach Billy Donovan said injuries are a small issue for his team right now: "We're banged up; just the normal wear and tear. Coming out of the game on Tuesday and Wednesday, there were seven guys in here getting rehab. I can't remember the last time there were seven guys in there getting rehab. But it's not like it's anything (major). These guys would play, but it's enough that it's hampering them where you can tell they're somewhat banged up."
