No. 10 Florida at Rutgers
When/where: 7; Rutgers Athletic Center, Piscataway, N.J.
TV/radio: ESPN2; 620-AM
Records: Florida 10-2, Rutgers 7-5
Notable: The Gators return to the court for the first time since last Thursday's big win over rival Florida State at home. … Although the teams have met six times, this is Florida's first time playing on the Scarlet Knights' home court. … Tonight's game will be a bittersweet homecoming for Florida guard Mike Rosario, who sat out all of last season after transferring from Rutgers. Rosario, who scored more than 1,000 points in two seasons at Rutgers, has missed the past two games with a chronic back injury, and although he has been cleared to play by the team's medical staff, he has had limited practice over the past two weeks. … Rutgers is led by forward Gilvydas Biruta, who is averaging 11.7 points and 6.1 rebounds. … Rutgers has exhibited stellar defensive play, holding opponents to 38.8 percent shooting from the field and 61.3 points per game.
