College basketball preview: No. 14 Florida Gators at LSU Tigers


No. 14 Florida at LSU

When/where: 1; Maravich Assembly Center, Baton Rouge, La.

TV/radio: ES-PN; 620-AM

Records: Florida 20-5, 9-2 SEC; LSU 10-16, 2-9

Notable: Florida will take the court for the first time in eight days, and though the Gators might be rested, they will be without senior F Chandler Parsons, who suffered a deep thigh bruise Feb. 12 against Tennessee and has not practiced all week. … With Parsons out, the Gators will play a three-guard rotation for a more extended time than any other this season. … Although LSU is in last place in the SEC West, the Gators haven't won in Baton Rouge since 2003 and are preparing to face a team that continues to give opponents a worthy fight. "In fairness to LSU, they got hit with a rash of injuries and have had different guys out throughout the course of the year, and that's a difficult thing to overcome," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "The last two games they've played pretty well. . . . So they are a good team."
