No. 2 Florida at Mississippi
When/where: Noon; Tad Smith Coliseum, Oxford, Miss.
TV/radio: Ch. 10; 1250-AM
Records: Florida 24-2, 13-0 SEC; Mississippi 16-10, 7-6
Notable: Florida faces Ole Miss for the first time since the Rebels upset the Gators in the SEC Tournament title game in March. UF enters on a school-record 18-game winning streak and has won five of the past six against Mississippi. In their last game, against Auburn, the Gators struggled to defend the 3-point shot. Ole Miss is No. 1 in the SEC in 3-pointers made (8.1 per game), led by G Marshall Henderson, who is third in the nation (4.48 3s per game). "Auburn was only making about five 3s a game while this team is making about eight a game and, obviously, has the ability to make much more," Gators coach Billy Donovan said.
