College basketball preview: Florida Gators vs. No. 13 Vanderbilt Commodores

Tonight

Florida vs.

No. 13 Vanderbilt

When/where: 7; Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: ESPN; 970-AM

Records: Vanderbilt 22-6, 11-3 SEC; Florida 20-9, 9-5

Notable: After knocking off Tennessee last week, the Gators seemed poised to make their first NCAA Tournament since 2007. But the loss to last-place Georgia on Saturday has Florida back on the bubble. So with two regular-season games left, tonight becomes another critical game. UF is listed as a No. 10 seed on the ESPN Bracketology board. … The Commodores have a huge frontcourt, led by junior C A.J. Ogilvy, and they are averaging 35 free throws in league play. … Florida coach Billy Donovan said C Vernon Macklin, F Chandler Parsons and freshman F Erik Murphy are "going to have to do a heck of a job against seven" Vandy players.
