The Gators have a big time game tonight. Its a must win game for the Gators who are trying to improve their case come tourney time. The Gators have not really beat a ranked team, so here is the perfect opportunity for the young squad. Lets get it done, Go Gators!
- Palm Beach Post: "Lofton's shooting, however, has given the Volunteers an identity. The Tennessee shooting guard even caused ex-Blue Devil-turned-ESPN analyst Jay Bilas to recently joke, "J.J. who?"
- Tampa Tribune: "Florida players hope that if tonight's 8 p.m. Southeastern Conference matchup against 10th-ranked Tennessee (19-4, 10-2 SEC) comes down to the final minute, they'll find a way to win. They know that come March, clutch play will separate great teams from good ones"
- Sentinel: "Now listen to Joakim Noah talking after UF's home loss to South Carolina.'We're walking around, and everybody's telling us how great we are," he said. "We can't be listening to that. When we win a big game, we fall back a little.'"
