Gators' Prather available against Auburn

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.
