TODAY: NO. 17 FLORIDA VS. AUBURN

WHEN/WHERE: 4; Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Gainesville.

TV/RADIO: Ch. 10; WDAE-AM 620.

RECORDS: Auburn 11-5, 2-3 SEC; UF 11-4, 2-2.

COACHES: Auburn _ Cliff Ellis (183-116, 10th season; 531-329 overall); UF _ Billy Donovan (160-77, eighth season; 195-97).

KEY PLAYERS: Auburn _ Marco Killingsworth, F, 6-7 Jr. (14.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg); Brandon Robinson, F, 6-8 Jr. (12.1 ppg, 7.5 rpg). UF _ David Lee, F, 6-9 Jr. (15.3 ppg, 7.5 rpg); Anthony Roberson, G, 6-1 So. (15.7 ppg, 3.9 apg); Matt Walsh, G, 6-6 So. (14.5 ppg, 5.1 rpg).

NOTES: A six-game winning streak has taken a turn and become a two-game conference losing streak for the Gators, including a double-digit loss at home to Mississippi State on Wednesday night. Florida has the nation's third-youngest squad playing a strength of schedule ranked No. 1 in the country, and it is struggling to find chemistry and consistency. Auburn is extremely physical in the paint, while Florida's defense has struggled to defend around the basket. This is the second of three consecutive SEC West opponents for the Gators. Florida has won the past four regular-season games against Auburn and five of the past six. Auburn center Kyle Davis recently moved into second place on the SEC's all-time blocks list with 320.
