Big 2:58 for Florida and Cincinnati coming up. Gators up one, looking to avoid a four-game losing streak. Cincinnati looking to pick up its first quality win of the campaign.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Florida's Egor Koulechov was 12-for-47 (25.5 percent) in his last four games. Up to 21 points and six boards so far tonight.

Jacob Evans has been much more aggressive for Cincinnati in the second half. Shot isn't falling, especially from the perimeter, but he's been taking it to the rim and drawing fouls. Tough matchup for Florida when he's attacking.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Six second-half fouls in six minutes for Florida. Cincinnati shooting the rest of the way.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Been a solid first half for Chris Chiozza. Catalyst for the entire Florida offense, especially when he can push tempo. Averaged just 6.0 points on 3-for-12 shooting in the two home losses this week.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Florida was attempting more than 24 3-pointers a game coming into today. Took just one in the first 10-plus minutes -- then proceeded to take one on three straight possessions. Finding more balance tonight though.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Eventful opening four minutes for Cincinnati's Kyle Washington. Had two turnovers on Bearcats' first two possession, then scored inside and hit a 3. Also grabbed a rebound and had a steal.
