College basketball preview: Florida Gators men vs. Kentucky


Florida vs. Kentucky

When/where: 2; Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: Ch. 10; 970-AM

Records: UF 21-9, 8-7 SEC; Kentucky 19-11, 8-7

Notable: Remember not too long ago when this game used to have championship implications? Now the battle is for third and fourth in the SEC East. The winner gets the No. 3 seed in next week's SEC tournament, and the loser gets No. 4. … Florida has lost five of seven and is on a three-game losing streak. Kentucky is on a three-game skid as well. Both teams should enter this matchup in desperation mode, which could add some spark. … Florida senior G Walter Hodge will play his final regular-season home game. With 113 wins, he will leave as the winningest player in UF history. He will be honored in a pregame ceremony.
