Men's college basketball preview capsule: No. 13 Florida Gators at No. 22 Kentucky Wildcats

No. 13 Florida at No. 22 Kentucky

When/where: 4 today; Rupp Arena, Lexington, Ky.

Notable: The Gators won 70-68 at home Feb. 5 as Chandler Parsons led UF with 17 points. … Despite their struggles this season, the Wildcats are averaging 80.2 points on 47.8 percent shooting over the past five games. Kentucky is the only school in the SEC to have two players in the top five in scoring (Terrence Jones, 17.6 points per game, and Brandon Knight, 17.7 ppg) and rebounding (Jones, 9.1, and Josh Harrellson, 8.8). … Florida will be playing its second game in less than 48 hours, so even though it has played Kentucky before, UF coach Billy Donovan said it doesn't make the turnaround any easier. "In a lot of ways, it's a different scouting report because you've got to make a lot of adjustments and anticipate some adjustments they are going to make as well."
