No. 15 Florida-No. 13 Connecticut preview


No. 15 Florida at No. 13 Connecticut

When/where: 7; Gampel Pavilion, Storrs, Conn.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 1250-AM

Records: Florida 6-1, UConn 7-0

Notable: On a five-game winning streak but still dealing with injuries that have left them with six scholarship players available, the Gators face their second ranked opponent this season. … Florida coach Billy Donovan expects the Huskies' backcourt to present a formidable challenge. "They've got three really, really good guards," he said. "I would say that (Shabazz) Napier is without question one of the elite point guards in the country. But it's not just him. … I think they have three guys they can put the ball in those guys' hands, and those guys are really able to make plays." … This is the Gators' first game against a member of the new American Athletic Conference.
