Senior G Cameron Tatum is the only returning starter, and sophomore G Trae Golden leads the team in scoring, averaging 14.8 points. Golden has scored 51 over the past two games. … Florida will be without junior G Mike Rosario, who will miss his second straight game with an ankle injury. … The Gators enter with the nation's No. 4 scoring offense and ranked No. 1 nationally in 3-point field goals made per game (11.1).
