Florida coach Billy Donovan says one of his team's biggest challenges Tuesday when the No. 7 Gators play host to No. 25 Kentucky is contending with the Wildcats' length and size in the frontcourt.
"It's something we're going to have to deal with," Donovan said. "They've got really good length. Across the front line, they've got a lot of different lineups they can play. They're getting (Willie) Cauley-Stein back and then you add (Kyle) Wiltjer and add (Alex) Poythress and (Nerlens) Noel. They have a lot of length up there.
"Our hand is what it is, in terms of our front court. We know we collectively have to do a good job as a group. I've always been a big believer that it's not one guy's responsibility to take care of another guy. We've got to do it and have done it this year as a team and we'll need to continue to do a good job there as a team."
