Donovan Worried About Quick Turnaround; Scoring 66 The Key For UF

His team is coming off a 76-68 loss at Kentucky on Saturday.  Up next is a “for all the marbles” type of game against fellow SEC title contender Alabama.  But Billy Donovan’s biggest concern is timing.  Tomorrow’s game with the Crimson Tide will be UF’s third in six days.

“There’s a lot to get ready for. … We’re both going to have two days to try to figure each other out.”

Well here are couple of things Donovan should know going into tomorrow’s showdown:

* Alabama wins with defense.  When the Tide has given up 65 or more points on the season, they’re 1-7.  (The win came in a game in which they gave up just 66.)  That means Alabama is a smoking 18-2 when they hold their opponents to less than 65.. and both those losses came back in November.  Florida’s key tomorrow night?  Uh, score 66 or more.

* Florida has lost just three games since December when its scored at least 66 points.  Again, score 66 and the Gators should be in good shape.
(In fact, UF is 12-1 on the season when it scores 70+.)
