KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin says Florida plays the best defense he has seen since he started coaching the Volunteers.

Martin got a close look at that defense Jan. 25 when Florida buried Tennessee 67-41 to hand the Vols their most lopsided loss in his three-year tenure. Tennessee (15-8, 6-4 SEC) could give its NCAA tournament hopes a major boost Tuesday by winning a rematch with the third-ranked Gators (21-2, 10-0) at Thompson-Boling Arena.

Tennessee shot 15 of 56 overall and 1 of 19 from 3-point range in the loss at Gainesville last month. Martin later said he "thought it was the best defense I've seen since I've been a part of Tennessee basketball against any team."

Florida carries a 15-game winning streak into Tuesday's rematch.
