College basketball preview: No. 6 Florida Gators at FSU Seminoles

. TONIGHT

No. 6 Florida at Florida State

When/where: 7; Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: ESPNU; 620-AM, 1040-AM

Records: Florida 6-0, FSU 4-3

Notable: Florida has its highest ranking since 2007 (No. 5 in coaches poll) and is fresh off a win over Marquette in which six players scored in double figures. Florida State is unranked and coming off a loss to Mercer on Sunday. … Florida F Erik Murphy is questionable with a hip pointer. … This is Florida's first true road test, and coach Billy Donovan said he's eager to see how the Gators respond. The Gators have allowed fewer than 50 points four times and have held opponents to 26 points or fewer in 10 of 12 halves, but they will face an FSU defense that has held six opponents under 50 percent shooting and held its first seven to a combined 41.1 percent.

    BROOKSVILLE — Nature Coast currently rides a 22-game regular-season win streak, but first-year football coach Cory Johns was not around for any of those wins. Neither was most of his coaching staff. This is an entirely new campaign with new obstacles ahead.
