Florida junior center Al Horford will sit out Saturday's game against No. 3 Ohio State with a high anklle sprain, coach Billy Donovan confirmed Thursday morning.

"Unless something miraculous happens, Al won't play," Donovan said during a teleconference. "We're preparing as if he won't be won't be with us."

The 6-foot-10 Horford leads Florida in scoring (13.2 ppg) and rebounding (8.3). Horford sprained his ankle last week in practice and has sat out Florida's previous two games against Stetson and Florida A&M.
