Notable: The Seminoles are searching for an eye-catching non-ACC win they hope might stamp them as NCAA Tournament-worthy. They've lost at Pittsburgh and at Wisconsin in their past two games and, as sophomore point guard Toney Douglas said, the Gators represent a "chance to redeem ourselves." ... The Gators will be without junior do-everything swingman Corey Brewer (mononucleosis), which means sophomore guard Walter Hodge will get his second straight start in a three-guard lineup that mirrors FSU's. ... UF center Al Horford will be tough inside, but the best matchup is FSU's Al Thornton vs. Joakim Noah or Horford. ... UF has won seven of the past eight meetings, overcoming a 17-point first-half deficit last season. ... The game is sold out.
