Florida looking for sixth straight win in Saturday's game against Missouri.
The No. 10 Florida Gators (13-2) come into Saturday's game at 2 p.m. ET at home against the No. 17 Missouri Tigers (13-3) with a five-game winning streak and an elite defense that has helped the Gators limit the offense of virtually every opponent they've played.
Missouri, meanwhile, has an offense capable of explosive outputs and has a win this season over then-No. 10 ranked Illinois as proof.
Florida features a balanced offense led by Kenny Boynton, who averages 13.2 points per game. Boynton is one of four Gators averaging double figures, joined by Mike Rosario, Erik Murphy and Patric Young. The team is third in the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 51.7 points per game.
Missouri comes in with five players who average double figures, led by Laurence Bowers, who averages 16.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. Jabari Brown, Phil Pressey, Alex Oriakhi and Earnest Ross are all capable scorers as well.
Florida could get a break if Bowers is unable to play. He has a sprained MCL and missed the last two games, but he could return Saturday.
