The 2013 NCAA basketball live stream and TV games continue with a clash between two Top 25 teams on Tuesday, Dec. 10. It will be the Kansas Jayhawks vs. Florida Gators, with the two teams looking to improve upon their current rankings. The latest televised and live stream NCAA basketball game will be featured on ESPN's networks.
According to ESPN.com in their Dec. 10 report, Kansas enters this matchup ranked No. 13 and has one of the top young stars in the nation with Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins, currently leading the team with 15.3 points per game, was mentioned as a player that many NBA teams will be hoping to draft in June 2014. However, he'll have his hands full tonight with a tough road game at No.19 Florida, where the Gators are 5-0 at home.
Ironically, both of these teams suffered buzzer beater losses in their previous campaigns. Florida fell to then-No. 12 Connecticut on a Shabazz Napier last second jumper, 65-64, while Kansas lost to Colorado 75-72 due to a last second shot from Askia Booker. Despite all that, and the "superstar status" that Andrew Wiggins has already started to embody, Florida will look forward to the return of their two guards, Scottie Wilbekin and Kasey Hill.
Kansas coach Bill Self has admitted that his current Jayhawks team is "not playing good at all," adding that, "The pieces just aren't quite fitting yet and we're trying to find ourselves." Self noted that he didn't expect them to be a "great team" this early in the season, so the team is still growing. Right now, only two players on the team are averaging double figures in scoring, with Perry Ellis, the only other besides Wiggins.
Both teams tonight come into the game at 6-2, and were ranked much higher earlier in the season, but have since fallen to their current spots. To their credit, Kansas currently ranks sixteenth in the nation in field goal percentage with .505%, but they'll look to improve on rebounding where they're 111th with 37.8 boards a game.
Florida has plenty to improve on, as they rank near the bottom 200 college basketball teams in points per game, rebounds per game and assists per game, while ranking 98th in field goal percentage with .465%. Quite possibly, the return of their two guards will be a step in the right direction towards improving these stats and getting wins.
The Gators are favored to win this game by 3 1/2 points at several sports books, after initially opening as 2 point favorites. The over/under for the Jayhawks vs. Wildcats is at 136 total points for the game. There are no notable injuries for either team as of this report.
Tuesday night's Kansas vs. Florida basketball game has a scheduled start time of 7 p.m. EST. Fans can watch on television via ESPN for cable or satellite TV. In addition, WatchESPN will have the game live streaming online for viewers who have access to this service. See more details here at WatchESPN for how to see this game live online.
