The Florida Gators men's basketball team will look to bolster its March Madness resume when it starts its SEC Tournament run Thursday against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Tip-off is expected to be 2:30 p.m. ET.

The Gators (13-8, 9-7 in SEC) are the No. 5 seed in the SEC Tournament. They have been paced by sophomore Tre Mann (15 points per game) and junior Colin Castleton (12.8 ppg) since star Keyontae Johnson collapsed during a game in December. Florida is coached by Mike White.

The Commodores (8-15, 3-13) are the No. 12 seed. They are led by sophomore guard Scotty Pippen Jr., the son of Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen. Vanderbilt is coached by Jerry Stackhouse.
