College basketball preview: No. 7 Florida at Auburn


No. 7 Florida at Auburn

When/where: 1:30 p.m.; Auburn (Ala.) Arena

TV/radio: Ch. 38; 1250-AM

Records: Florida 20-3, 10-1 SEC; Auburn 9-15, 3-8

Notable: The Gators are on the road for the first time since suffering their first conference loss, 80-69 at Arkansas on Feb. 5, and are coming off Tuesday's 69-52 win over Kentucky. UF has won six consecutive games at Auburn. … The Tigers won their first two SEC contests but have since dropped eight of nine. They are coming off Wednesday's 83-75 home loss to Arkansas. … Florida is fourth in the nation in scoring defense, allowing 52.7 points per game, and has shot 50 percent or better from the field in nine of their past 13 games. … Florida senior guard Kenny Boynton is expected to make his 129th start today, which will pass Andrew DeClercq for most in school history. Boynton also is just 14 points shy of becoming the third Gator with 1,900 career points.
