THREE THINGS TO WATCH
• Georgia interim coach Pete Hermann hasn't changed much since replacing Dennis Felton 10 days ago. The Bulldogs are mixing defenses a little more now, Horn said. But overall they're still a struggling group, having lost nine in a row, and by an average of more than 12 points.
• Horn's focus is almost always going to be defense, but especially so tonight. He felt his team gave up too many easy baskets against Florida, most of them open dunks and layups.
• The school has been promoting this as "Operation Sellout," and as of late Friday afternoon there were less than 100 tickets still available. Giveaways account for a large chunk of the total, however.
