College basketball preview: Florida vs. Vanderbilt


No. 11 Florida vs. Vanderbilt

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

TV/radio: Ch. 38; 620-AM

Records: Vanderbilt 13-15, 7-9 SEC; Florida 23-5, 13-3

Notable: It's senior night in Gainesville, and along with all the emotions that go with that pregame ceremony, the Gators are also playing for title: a win and they secure the SEC championship outright. … Florida is trying to earn its second undefeated home record under Billy Donovan; the Gators went 18-0 at home in 2006-07. They are currently 13-0. … Vanderbilt, which lost a core group of veterans from last season, has struggled but enters tonight having won three straight and four of five. … The Commodores are shooting 35.7 percent from 3-point range, which Donovan said is a major concern. … Florida gets another opportunity to try to integrate junior F Will Yeguete into the rotation as he plays his second game since having knee surgery.
