WHEN/WHERE: 4; O'Connell Center, Gainesville.

TV/RADIO: Sunshine; WDAE-AM 620.

RECORDS: UNH 2-7, UF 9-1.

COACHES: UNH -- Phil Rowe (5-32, second season; 185-181 overall). UF -- Billy Donovan (87-50, fifth season; 122-70).

KEY PLAYERS: UNH -- Austin Ganly, F, 6-6 Jr. (22.6 ppg, 5.0 rpg); Jeff Senulis, C, 6-8 So. (10.9 ppg, 4.2 rpg). UF -- Udonis Haslem, C, 6-8 Jr. (18.2 ppg, 7.7 rpg); Brent Wright, F, 6-9 Sr. (16.3 ppg, 7.2 rpg); Teddy Dupay, G, 5-10 Jr. (14.8 ppg); Matt Bonner, F, 6-9 So.

NOTES: Florida won the only previous meeting, 131-72 last season in Gainesville. Next season, the Gators travel to New Hampshire, put on the schedule because Bonner is a native. The Gators can break the school record of 21 consecutive victories against non-SEC opponents at home, set from 1983-88. The last such loss was to Georgetown in the first round of the National Invitational Tournament in 1988. Florida has opened with a 9-1 record five times, including the past three seasons under Donovan. UF was 11-1 last season. Dupay tied a career high with seven three-point baskets and scored a career-high 28 points in Thursday's 103-85 victory against Tulane. He is 26-for-65 (40 percent) beyond the arc this season. -- Compiled by Joanne Korth
