Florida vs. Arkansas

When/where: 8; O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: FSN; 620-AM

Notable: The Gators are coming off the worst offensive performance for a Billy Donovan-coached team at Florida — 45 points in a five-point win over struggling Auburn on Thursday. Still, Florida is tied for first place in the SEC East with South Carolina. … The Gators have won nine of the past 11 games in this series, including the past three in a row. This will be the sixth time Donovan has met former Gators assistant and longtime friend John Pelphrey, holding a 4-1 advantage. … Florida's trio of G Erving Walker, G Kenny Boynton and F Chandler Parsons has hit 26 of UF's 27 3-pointers in SEC play. … G Rotnei Clark leads the Razorbacks, averaging 13 points a game.
