College men's basketball preview capsule: No. 14 Florida Gators at Arkansas Razorbacks, 6 p.m. Saturday

No. 14 Florida at Arkansas

When/where: 6; Bud Walton Arena, Fayetteville, Ark.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 620-AM

Records: Florida 20-6, 8-3 SEC; Arkansas 17-9, 5-6

Notable: G Mike Rosario, who has missed the past two games with a hip pointer, practiced Friday and may be available today. UF coach Billy Donovan said the decision will be based on how Rosario practiced. Sophomore F Will Yeguete, who sustained a concussion last week, was medically cleared to practice Friday, but his status for today's game is questionable. … The Gators will try to get a win at Bud Walton Arena, where the Razorbacks are 17-1 this season and undefeated in conference play. Florida has won seven of the past eight against Arkansas, including four in a row. … UF assistant coach John Pelphrey returns to Arkansas, where he spent four seasons as head coach before he was fired at the end of last season.
