No. 13 Florida at Tennessee

When/where: 11 a.m.; Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, Tenn.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 620-AM

Records: Florida 12-3, Tennessee 7-7

Notable: Florida begins SEC play, hoping to earn its first true road win of the season; the Gators are 0-3 on the road. … The Vols are without four starters from last season's team and so far are struggling under first-year coach Cuonzo Martin. 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).
