The Gator women are at home to host Saint Francis.   Florida is 6-3 on the year while the Red Flash come in at 2-5.   This will be Florida's first game in 13 days and after the game tonight, the Gators will host a mini-tournament this weekend.

The Gator men are in New York City as part of the Jimmy V Classic to face a good Memphis team.   Florida is 7-2 on the season while the Tigers are 7-1 with their only loss coming on the road at Oklahoma State, a team they later beat this season.

The Gators come in to the game relatively healthy but they will still not have the services of freshman forward Chris Walker who has been cleared to practice with the team but not cleared to play by the NCAA after he worked to complete his eligibility requirements.

Gator coach Billy Donovan said on Monday that transfer center Damontre Harris is still off the team and it is unlikely he will return to the team at all.

Memphis averages around 84 points a game with a balanced attack with five scorers averaging nine points or better.   Senior guard Joe Jackson leads the way with 15 points a game while 6'9″ sophomore forward Shaq Goodwin averages 13 points and seven rebounds a contest.

You can hear live coverage of the Gator women at 5:50pm on ESPN 850 WRUF and the Gator men are on Country 103-7 The Gator starting at 8:25pm.
