Hey, remember basketball? Tennessee is actually really good at it, and they’re back in action tonight in Gainesville, taking on the Florida Gators. Hopefully they’ll give us a nice little distraction from that mess in Knoxville.
Tennessee now sits at 10-1 overall, while Florida is 6-4. The Gators have been dealing with the loss of Keyontae Johnson, who was ruled out for the year with a heart condition. Florida will also be without Scottie Lewis tonight, who will miss his fourth straight game.
Tre Mann, Colin Castleton, Noah Locke and Tyree Appleby still form a potent group for Mike White, however. The Gators are 3-3 in conference play — a respectable mark all things considered.
This is another decent road test for Tennessee, which remains 2-0 away from home on the year with dominant wins over Texas A&M and Missouri.
