NOTABLE: The Gators are coming off a nine-day break against a JU team that is struggling. Florida, however, is trying to match the best start in school history. The Gators haven't lost at home since Jan. 19. Florida has scored 80 or more points in its last four games, has all five starters averaging double figures and is shooting better from 3-point range (43.9 percent) than its opponents are from the floor (41.2). But Donovan believes JU could present some matchup problems. "Cliff has come in and tried to play a different style of play, they are going up and down the floor, they are trying to run and press and play in transition," Donovan said. ... "They are a basketball team that is scoring points and playing at a fast pace. It'll be a big challenge for us because the closest team style of playwise we've played recently is Providence and we didn't do a very good job handling the ball. We have to do that against Jacksonville, we're going to have to take care of the ball and make good decisions both fullcourt and halfcourt."
