Saturday December 15, 2012Chart: Gators-Wildcats just 4th game between top-10 teams this year

McKale

When fifth-ranked Florida (7-0) and eighth-ranked Arizona (7-0) clash Saturday night in Tucson at McKale Center the game will be just the 11th time in this 2012-13 college basketball season that a pair of ranked teams have squared off -- and just the fourth time a pair of top 10 teams have played.

Of those previous three top-10 games, only one -- Duke vs. Ohio State -- was played as a home game. The other two were at neutral-site tournaments.
