NOTEWORTHY: It is senior day in Coleman Coliseum. Neither of the Tide’s two seniors — ArMond Davis and Riley Norris — have played since December because of injury, but both will be honored in a pregame ceremony. … The Crimson Tide beat Florida 68-50 in Gainesville on Feb. 3. Alabama has not won back-to-back games against Florida since 1997. The Crimson Tide hasn’t defeated the Gators twice in one season since 1990-91. … Gators guard Chris Chiozza needs five more assists to become the program’s all-time assists leader and break Erving Walker’s Florida record. … Alabama is mired in a season-long, three-game losing streak. A loss Tuesday ensures the Tide cannot finish with a winning conference record.
