College men's basketball preview capsule: No. 8 Florida Gators vs. Tennessee Volunteers, 4 p.m. Saturday

No. 8 Florida vs. Tennessee

When/where: 4; O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: Ch. 38; 620-AM

Records: Florida 19-5, 7-2 SEC; Tennessee 12-12, 4-5

Notable: The Gators are coming off a 20-point loss at No. 1 Kentucky and facing the only other team in the conference that has defeated UF this season. Florida will try to keep its 19-game home win streak alive. The Gators have not lost back-to-back games all season. … The Vols have a below .500 conference record but come in with the confidence they've beaten the Gators this season and having won four of their past six games. … Tennessee freshman Jarnell Stokes, who had UF on his list of final candidates, joined the team in January and is averaging 8.9 points and 7.9 rebounds but has a sprained hand and is listed as questionable for today.
