GAINESVILLE — Florida's leading scorer, Casey Prather, who missed two games with a bruised right knee, will be available when the No. 7 Gators play at Auburn today.

Prather, who averages 17 points, has been running and practicing with contact. Coach Billy Donovan said he is not sure how many minutes UF will get out of the 6-foot-6 senior: "How much he'll play is really, really hard to say. I'm doubtful he'll play much. That's my guess."

The Gators (14-2, 3-0 SEC) have won eight in a row and 13 of 14, their only loss a buzzer-beater at then-No. 12 UConn early last month.

With Prather out, forward Dorian Finney-Smith replaced him in the starting lineup against Arkansas and guard Kasey Hill got the nod against Georgia on Tuesday.


No. 4 Stanford 96, Arizona 52: Chiney Ogwumike had 24 points and 12 rebounds and the Cardinal (16-1, 5-0 Pac-12) rolled over the host Wildcats.

No. 19 Ariz. St. 68, No. 15 Cal 59: Quinn Dornstauder scored 13 and the host Sun Devils (15-2, 4-1 Pac-12) pulled away from the Bears (12-4, 4-1).

No. 22 Purdue 86, Indiana 53: Courtney Moses scored 24 and KK Houser 22 as the host Boilermakers (12-5, 2-3 Big Ten) bounced back from a home loss to Michigan.
