College basketball preview: No. 13 Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs

TONIGHT

No. 13 Florida vs. Georgia

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

TV/radio: ESPN2; 620-AM

Records: ; Florida 21-5, 10-2 SEC; Georgia 18-8, 7-5

Notable: This is a rematch of a game this season that the Gators won 104-91 in double overtime. … Florida remains in first place in the SEC East and is in search of its sixth straight conference victory, its longest streak since winning 11 in a row in 2007. … Defense has been critical in the Gators' success this season: They are 18-1 when holding opponents to 70 points or fewer. … Tonight could mark the return of senior F Chandler Parsons, who missed the first game of his career Sunday at LSU with a deep thigh bruise. Coach Billy Donovan said he does not expect Parsons to start but expects him to play. "I think we've made some positive progress," Donovan said. "(Tuesday) we were able to work him out individually. He felt much better, probably the best he has felt in some time."
