. up next

Today: No. 10 UF vs. Alabama State

When/where: 3:30; O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: Sun Sports; 620-AM

Records: Florida 0-0, Alabama State 0-1

Notable: After having Friday night's game against Georgetown canceled after halftime because of condensation on the makeshift court aboard the USS Bataan, today's game serves as Florida's opener. The Gators have won 21 consecutive home openers, 16 under coach Billy Donovan. This is the first of three games over seven days for the Gators, who are 1-0 all-time against Alabama State, 6-0 against teams from the SWAC. Alabama State finished 12-19 last season and is coming off a 97-53 loss at Middle Tennessee.
