Georgia entered the game last in the SEC in field-goal percentage and scoring but exceeded its scoring average by 15 points. The backcourt-driven Bulldogs are led by Gerald Robinson (14.3 ppg, 3.8 apg) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (13.9 ppg, 5.1 rpg). The 6-8 Nemanja Djurisic, who stepped out for a pair of three-pointers against UK in Athens, leads the team at 38.8 percent from beyond the arc.Florida Gators

About the opponent
Location: Gainesville, Fla.
School colors: Orange and Blue
Coach: Billy Donovan
2011-12 record: 22-7 overall, 10-4 SEC
2010-11 record: 29-8 overall, 13-3 SEC (first place in Eastern Division). Lost to Butler 74-71 (OT) in NCAA Tournament Southeast Regional finals.
All time vs. UK: 33-91
Last meeting: Kentucky won 78-58 on Feb. 7 in Rupp Arena.
Outlook: The Gators, facing a final week that includes a trip to Vanderbilt and a visit from No. 1 Kentucky, suffered a puzzling defeat Saturday at Georgia. Donovan was highly critical of his team after the loss. "I really am concerned if we will ever play with any passion again," Donovan said. "Sometimes to coach with these guys, I feel like I'm grabbing these guys by the back of their shirts and I'm pulling them up a hill all the time."
