Current records: Florida 12-8; Kansas State 17-3
What to know
The Florida Gators will face the #5 Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. ET at the Fred Bramlage Coliseum. The Gators should still ride high after a big win, while K-State will be looking to get back in the win column.
Florida made easy work of Wednesday against the South Carolina Gamecocks and notched up an 81-60 victory. Florida had double-digit scores from five players: forward Colin Castleton (18), guard Kowacie Reeves (15), guard Riley Kugel (14), guard Kyle Lofton (10), and guard Will Richard ( 10).
K-State lost a heartthrob to the Iowa State Cyclones when they met last February, and they left with heavy hearts again Tuesday. K-State fell to an 80-76 heartthrob. The losing team was boosted by guard Markquis Nowell, who had 23 points and nine assists.
The Gators should lose next by 5. It might be worth risking against the spread, however, as they are currently on a five-game ATS winning streak.
Florida’s win moved them to 12-8 while the Wildcats’ loss moved them to 17-3. Florida is 5-6 after wins this season and K-State is 2-0 after losses.
