College basketball preview: No. 12 Florida Gators vs. Arizona Wildcats

.TONIGHT

No. 12 Florida

vs. Arizona

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

TV/radio: ESPN; 620-AM

Records: Arizona 6-2; Florida 5-2

Notable: Although Arizona isn't ranked, both teams advanced to the Elite Eight last season, and the Wildcats are one of the top two non-conference teams Florida will play at home. … The Gators have won nine in a row at home dating to last season. … They are coming off a loss at now-No. 3 Syracuse and are looking for a signature win in the non-conference schedule. … The Gators' inside game should be stronger with the return of junior F Erik Murphy after he missed three games with a knee injury. … Arizona suspended freshman guard Josiah Turner for the game for violations of team policy.
