What to watch for in SEC men's basketball.

Pearl's back

Bruce Pearl has been suspended for eight SEC games for lying to NCAA investigators. But Pearl will get a chance to return to the bench for one game on Saturday when the Vols face Connecticut in an out-of-conference game.

Georgia bounce-back

Can Georgia rebound from a tough loss to Tennessee at the buzzer when it plays Saturday at home against Mississippi State? MSU is starting to play better with the recent return of talented point guard Dee Bost.

Mentor vs. Pupil

Florida coach Billy Donovan will face one of his former UF assistants again when the Gators host Arkansas, led by coach John Pelphrey. Donovan is 4-2 against his former assistants, having recently lost to UCF coach and former Gator assistant coach Donnie Jones.
