College basketball preview: Florida Gators vs. Morehead State Eagles

Today: No. 9 Florida vs. Morehead State

When/where: 3:30; O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: Sun Sports; 970-AM

Records: Florida 3-1; Morehead State 2-1

Notable: Coming off a 50-point win over North Carolina A&T, the Gators shouldn't expect to repeat that against Morehead State. The Eagles, 24-11 overall and 15-3 in the Ohio Valley last season, return all five starters, including OVC preseason player of the year Kenneth Faried. The senior forward is the nation's top returning rebounder. … UF's win over A&T was a nice bounceback from a disappointing loss to No. 4 Ohio State. Against A&T, eight Gators scored in double figures, their most in nearly 10 years, and UF dished out 26 assists, its most since November 2008. … UF coach Billy Donovan is 5-0 in games against OVC teams. The Gators are 6-1 overall. … The teams split their previous two meetings, with UF winning the most recent 117-70 on Dec. 22, 1998.

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
