Men's college basketball: Florida Gators vs. Radford preview capsule

TONIGHT

No. 20 Florida vs. Radford

When/where: 7; O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: BHSN; 970-AM

Records: Florida 8-3, Radford 2-8

Notable: The Gators return to the court two days after a 71-68 home overtime loss to unranked Jacksonville, trying to avoid losing back-to-back home games for the first time since the 2007-08 season. … In the past two games, the Gators have had 26 turnovers and five assists in the first half and averaged 23.5 points. In the second half of those two games, they've had 15 assists and eight turnovers, averaging 35.5 points. … "I think the one thing that happens during the course of the season is you're dealing with either prosperity or adversity," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "And we're dealing with adversity. Our guys handle adversity pretty well. They really are a resilient group. They bounce back pretty quickly, they fight, they try to get better, they try to improve. But in order to be a great, great team you have to be able to handle the prosperity, because if you're really good, that means you're winning a lot. And we have not been that team."
