The Gators wore black uniforms for the first time since 2010 and blacked out Tennessee 83-70 on Jan. 7.
That stinging loss, however, was followed by two outstanding road wins.

Senior point guard Kasey Hill had his career game with 21 points, five rebounds and six assists.
Justin Leon had 18 points in a big win over Texas A&M, the same night John Egbunu rang up his first double-double of the season with 10 points and 11 rebounds. But three nights later ...

KeVaughn missed eight of his first 10 shots ... then volcanoed for a career-high 35 against the Badgers.
UF led by seven at halftime, thanks to 7-for-12 shooting from the 3-point line.
