College basketball preview: Florida Gators at No. 14 Tennessee Volunteers

Florida at No. 14 Tennessee

When/where: 1; Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, Tenn.

TV/radio: Ch. 10; 1250-AM

Records: Florida 15-5, 4-2 SEC; Tennessee 15-4, 3-2

Notable: The Gators are on a four-game conference winning streak, while the Vols have lost their past two. But the Vols have won 10 of the past 13 meetings, including the past five. … Florida G Erving Walker has shot 70 percent from 3-point range over the past four games, and the Gators have allowed 62.8 ppg in that span. But their frontcourt will have its hands full with 6-foot-9 F Wayne Chism, whom UF coach Billy Donovan said is "so imposing because he is so big and he's a very, very smart player." Chism is averaging 12.6 points and 10.6 rebounds in SEC play and is second in the league in rebounds and steals (2.2).
