The Florida Gators men's basketball team will look to continue rolling into March Madness when it faces the Tennessee Volunteers on Friday in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals.

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

The Gators (14-8, 9-7 in SEC) are the No. 5 seed in the SEC Tournament. They beat Vanderbilt 69-63 in their tournament opener Thursday. Sophomore Tre Mann (15 points per game) and junior Colin Castleton (12.8 ppg) have led the way since star Keyontae Johnson collapsed during a game in December. Florida is coached by Mike White.

The Vols (18-7, 10-7) are the No. 4 seed in the SEC. They are led by freshman guard Jaden Springer (12.4 points per game), and their stout defense is paced by sophomore guard Josiah-Jordan James. They are coached by Rick Barnes.

Tennessee and Florida split the regular-season series, with the Gators winning 75-49 on Jan. 19 in Gainesville and the Vols winning 65-54 on March 7 in Knoxville.
