    Gators got back on track the tourney, now they need to keep it up.

    Chris Harry's take:

    No. 24 FLORIDA vs MARSHALL

    When: Friday, 9 p.m. (EST)
    Where: Exactech Arena/O'Connell Center, Gainesville, Fla.
    Records: Florida (5-2); Marshall (2-3)
    TV: SEC Network (Tom Hart and Mark Wise)
    Radio: Gator IMG Sports Network (Mick Hubert and Bill Koss)



    THE BASICS
    [​IMG]
    UF guard Noah Locke, surrounded by his teammates, raises the championship trophy at the Charleston Classic after UF's 70-65 defeat of 18th-ranked Xavier in the title game Sunday night.
    Florida returns to the O'Dome in a much better place than when it last left it, following a down-to-the-wire win over Towson State. The Gators followed that performance with a loss at Connecticut to fall to 2-2, but rebounded spectacularly with three wins and a tournament championship at the Charleston Classic, highlighted by Sunday night's 70-65 victory over 18th-ranked and previously unbeaten Xavier. The run through a decent tournament field moved the Gators back into the Associated Press Top 25 after they debuted at No. 6, dropped to 15th after a loss to Florida State the second game of the season, then out of the rankings altogether post-UConn. As for Marshall, out of Conference USA, it has not played for eight days, with the Thundering Herd's last outing a 91-63 win over Howard that snapped a three-game losing streak. ... UF and Marshall have never played in men's basketball. ... UF is 1-0 against C-USA teams in five seasons under Coach Mike White.

    I'm thinking they are going to have trouble dealing with our quickness.

    They play at one of the fastest paces in the country, but maybe they'll regret doing so against us. Hopefully.

    UF and Marshall share the Billy Donovan connection, as Florida hired Donovan away from Marshall in 1996
    after his 2 seasons leading the Thundering Herd.

    • Marshall earned a CIT championship last season and has picked up wins vs. Robert Morris and Howard early on this season.
    • Jarrod West (15.4 ppg) and Taevion Kinsey (15.0) lead the scoring attack, and Kinsey also dishes 6 assists and grabs 6.6 boards per game. • The Thundering Herd have not yet found their footing from beyond the arc, shooting .245 (26-for-106) from long range this season. West and Jannson Williams lead with 7 treys each.
    • Williams has blocked 12 shots, and Marshall averages 8.4 swats per game. OPPONENT’S LAST 5 GAMES

    Are there any pregame activities?

    I am taking my kids to their first game and I want to do something pregame (especially with the 9pm start). Is there anything going on in the arena or around it for fans (and kids?)

    UK is on SEC network before us at 7. Presuming overlap, can I catch the 900 tip on my computer streaming through my local cable provider somehow?

    If there is overlap we will probably start on SEC alternate network.

    I know the answer is TV, but why a 9:00 Friday night game on a holiday weekend? I have seasons tickets, but I don’t want to come home at midnight. I’ll tube it
