College basketball preview: No. 14 Florida Gators at No. 21 Vanderbilt Commodores

No. 14 Florida at No. 21 Vanderbilt

When/where: 6; Memorial Gymnasium, Nashville

TV/radio: ESPN; 970-AM

Records: Florida 23-6, 12-3 SEC; Vanderbilt 21-8, 9-6

Notable: Having already clinched at least a share of the SEC regular-season championship, Florida can win it outright with a win or Alabama loss to Georgia today. … Since its overtime loss at Florida on Feb. 1, Vanderbilt is 6-2 in SEC play. Overall, it ranks second in the league in scoring (76.7 points per game), field-goal percentage (45.8) and 3-point percentage (38.6). Junior G John Jenkins leads the SEC in scoring at 19.4 points per game. … For Florida's Billy Donovan, coaching his 500th game today, a major concern is keeping his players focused. Florida has won 16 of the past 21 games against the Commodores. But Donovan's teams are 6-8 in Nashville. "I think that there are teams traditionally that have played really exceptional at home," he said. "And Vanderbilt is one of those teams."
