Here's all of what you need to know about Florida's game against Wisconsin in the O'Connell Center tonight.

Game time, TV channel: 7 p.m. Eastern, ESPN2. It's also on WatchESPN, but it's blacked out unless you're on the West Coast.

Series history: Florida is 1-1 against Wisconsin, taking on the Badgers in a home-and-home non-conference series in 1967 and 1968. The Gators lost by five to the Badgers on the road in '67, then won by five at home in '68.

Players to watch: Both teams are without their starting point guards, but Wisconsin's Josh Gasser is a bigger loss than Scottie Wilbekin, because Kenny Boynton appeared very capable of running the point when not on an amphibious assault vessel on Sunday against Alabama State. Boynton should be able to get the Gators a win by shooting well and cutting down on turnovers.

Prediction: As I told Bucky's 5th Quarter, I like Florida, 75-71.
