FLORIDA VS. RUTGERS

WHEN/WHERE: 7 tonight, Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/RADIO: FSN; 620-AM, WHNZ-AM 1250

RECORDS: UF 3-0, Rutgers 3-0

NOTABLE: Florida coach Billy Donovan calls this the Gators' first test of the season. Coincidentally, these teams have three wins over the same opponents - Tennessee Tech, North Dakota State and North Carolina Central. With a starting lineup that includes three players 6 feet 7 or taller, the much smaller Gators will have a formidable challenge on the boards. Rutgers is outrebounding opponents by 6.7 per game. The Gators are averaging 20 assists per game and getting an average of 35 points off the bench. Donovan is going for career win No. 300 tonight.
