No. 3 Florida stands tall in short turnarounds


GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- No. 3 Florida knows how to handle tight turnarounds.
The Gators are 8-1 in Saturday games following Thursday night tilts, including four straight wins.
Coach Billy Donovan's team will try to make it five in a row Saturday against Texas A&M (12-8, 3-4 Southeastern Conference). Florida (18-2, 7-0) has won 12 in a row and 17 of 18.
The latest win came Thursday at Mississippi State. The Gators briefly trailed in the second half before pulling away. The 62-51 victory marked the 12th time this season Florida has held an opponent to 60 points or fewer.
Defense has been a big key to the team's success in short-rest situations. The Gators have allowed an average of 54 points in their last four Saturday games following Thursday wins.
