No. 12 Florida vs. Rider
When/where: 7; Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena
Records: Florida 6-2, Rider 1-8, 0-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic
Notable: The Gators play their third neutral-site game this season (beat Wright State in Tampa and Stetson in Orlando) less than 48 hours after an overtime win over Arizona at home. … This is the first meeting between the schools, and they will play where the Gators began their 2006 NCAA national title run. … This will be a homecoming for Florida sophomore C Patric Young, a native of Jacksonville who is coming off a career-best game Wednesday of 25 points and 10 rebounds.
