FLORIDA: Last season: 21-13, losing in second round of NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Gators.
Coach: Mike White.
Conference: SEC.
Who's gone: Point guard Chris Chiozza, swingman Egor Koulechov, center John Egbunu.
Who's back: Guard Jalen Hudson entered the NBA draft but failed to get an invite to the combine, so he returned for his senior season. Hudson averaged a team-high 15.5 points last year and gives the Gators a proven scorer to play alongside shooting guard KeVaughn Allen and highly touted freshman point guard Andrew Nembhard. Forwards Keith Stone and Kevarrius Hayes get some much-needed help in the frontcourt with the return of Chase Johnson (concussion) and Isaiah Stokes (knee).
Who's new: Nembhard is expected to be one of the top freshmen in the conference, maybe even the country. A 6-foot-5 Canadian who attended high school in nearby Orlando, Nembhard led his country to a silver medal in the FIBA U18 Americas. White calls him the best passer he's ever coached, saying "that is his gift." Forward Keyontae Johnson and guard Noah Locke will be role players as freshmen.
The Skinny: The Gators faltered in February, limped into the tournament and failed to get past the opening weekend. Still, back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances are notable progress for White, who's entering his fourth season at Florida. Team needs to be better at home after dropping five of 17 games in the O'Connell Center in 2017-18.
Expectations: Anything short of another NCAA Tournament berth would be a disappointment in White's fourth season. They have enough talent, experience and depth to make a lengthy postseason run, especially if Nembhard is as good as advertised.
NEVADA: Last season: 29-8, reached second Sweet 16 in school history.
Nickname: Wolf Pack.
Coach: Eric Musselman.
Conference: Mountain West.
Who's gone: G Kendall Stephens, G Hallice Cooke, G Darien Williams.
Who's back: Forwards Caleb and Cody Martin, F Jordan Caroline, G Lindsey Drew. The return of the Martin twins and Caroline was a huge boon for Musselman and the Wolf Pack. They were Nevada's top three scorers and rebounders a year ago, versatile players who helped match the deepest NCAA Tournament run in program history.
Who's new: Trey Porter, a 6-11 graduate transfer from Old Dominion, gives Nevada an immediate post presence, along with talented 6-11 freshman Jordan Brown. Guard transfers Corey Henson (Wagner), Jazz Johnson (Portland) and Tre'Shawn Turman (Omaha) give the Wolf Pack one of the nation's deepest, most talented rosters.
The Skinny: Expectations are high in Reno after the Elite Eight run and the return of the Martin twins and Caroline. The No. 7 Wolf Pack have their highest preseason ranking and are legitimate Final Four contenders.
Expectations: Nevada is among the favorites to win the NCAA Tournament at 12-1, right behind blue bloods like Duke, Kentucky, Kansas and North Carolina.
7 seed Nevada set for test from 10th-seeded Gators

Nevada made a nice run in last season's NCAA Tournament and is aiming to make another deep dash.

But the No. 7 seed Wolf Pack (29-4) also teetered a bit down the stretch of this season and will look to regain their swagger when they face 10th-seeded Florida (19-15) in the first round on Thursday at Des Moines, Iowa.

Nevada started the season by winning 24 of its first 25 games, but went 5-3 to close the season, including two losses to San Diego State. It was the second straight season that the Aztecs sent the Wolf Pack home in the Mountain West tournament semifinals.

"We have to feel good going in," Nevada coach Eric Musselman said. "We did last year. We can't let a lingering loss affect us. It didn't last year."

Last year, the Wolf Pack defeated Texas and Cincinnati before they lost in the Sweet 16 to tournament darling Loyola-Chicago.

Nevada's 58 wins is the most in a two-season span in school history. The NCAA Tournament appearance is the Wolf Pack's third in a row but going on another run won't be easy.

Florida's win-loss record might not be impressive but the Gators played an arduous schedule and are toughened up by the rigors of Southeastern Conference play.

The Gators dropped their last three regular-season games but an upset of LSU in the quarterfinals of the conference tourney appeared to seal their NCAA bid. Florida lost to eventual tournament champion Auburn in the semifinals.

Florida is making its third straight NCAA tourney appearance and advanced to the Elite Eight two seasons ago before falling to South Carolina.

The Gators are well aware of the challenge and they also know the quality of conference doesn't come into play in an NCAA Tournament game.

"It's a different level of competition, regarding the NCAA Tournament," senior center Kevarrius Hayes told reporters. "Everybody is playing to win. We have to bring our 'A' game because that's exactly what the other team is going to do. ... We have to lock in and be more focused than ever going into those games."

Gators coach Mike White studied the Wolf Pack and was impressed with what he witnessed.

"They're terrific. They've won a ton of games over the past couple years. They're big and their old," White told reporters of a veteran Nevada roster. "They're trying to play eight guys and six are seniors. They've got to be, probably, the oldest team in the country. Experienced, talented, athletic, versatile. Defensively, they're long and athletic and can get away with a lot of switching. Offensively, they're very efficient."

Nevada senior big man Jordan Caroline missed the loss against San Diego State due to a lingering Achilles injury but Musselman said he will Florida.

Caroline averages 17.3 points and a team-best 9.6 rebounds while forming a powerful one-two punch with star senior guard Caleb Martin, who averages 19.2 points and has drained 105 3-pointers.

Martin is disappointed with how the Wolf Pack finished the season -- they also lost to NCAA team Utah State down the stretch -- and feels the team is ready to redeem itself.

His twin brother, senior forward Cody Martin, said the club's focus needs to improve.

"It takes a lot of heart and a lot of consistency, in every aspect of the game," Cody Martin told reporters. "Not taking any possession for granted. We can do that as a team. We can do that at a high level. We just have to make sure we're prepared and we're focused and we have our mind right."

Senior guard KeVaughn Allen (12.0) is the lone Florida player scoring in double digits.
