Georgia vs. Florida

Time/place: Today, 12 p.m., Stegeman Coliseum, Athens

Broadcast: Jefferson-Pilot television

Records: Georgia is 10-3, No. 5 Florida is 13-0

About Florida: All five Gator starters average between 11.5 and 13.8 points per game. … Joakim Noah, son of former tennis star Yannik Noah, is emerging as a force. He's averaging 11.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. … Guard Lee Humphrey leads the SEC in 3-pointers made (44) and percentage (56 percent).

About Georgia: Freshman guard Terrance Woodbury, who showed tremendous potential but has been out since the fourth game of the season due to a knee sprain, could return today. Woodbury dressed out for the first time since his injury for Monday's game against Howard. He is considered day-to-day. … The Bulldogs' top six scorers are guards. The top scoring post player is forward Younes Idrissi, who is averaging just 5.8 points per game.

Scouting report: Florida coach Billy Donovan isn't surprised the Bulldogs are better this year, and he doesn't think anyone else is either. "I think if you went around the league everybody said Georgia would be a lot, lot better because of their five starters returning and some very good freshman," he said. If the Bulldogs are going to win, they will have to do it on the defensive end. Florida lost David Lee, Anthony Roberson and Matt Walsh but still is second in the SEC this year in scoring with 83.5 points per game.

Up next: Georgia at Tennessee, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.; Florida vs. Mississippi State, Wednesday, 7 p.m.
