Billy Donovan's Florida team has been able to overcome a plethora of injuries to key players while getting off to a solid start in SEC play.
One of the conference's newcomers seems ready to present another difficult challenge.
The 10th-ranked Gators will have Mike Rosario back in the lineup when they visit Elston Turner and surging Texas A&M on Thursday night.
Rosario sat out Saturday's 74-52 victory over LSU with a sprained left ankle after scoring 19 points as Florida (12-2, 2-0) beat Georgia 77-44 on Jan. 9. He has been cleared to play Thursday, but Casey Prather suffered a high ankle sprain against LSU and will be out up to two weeks.
Guard Scottie Wilbekin (finger) and forwards Erik Murphy (rib) and Will Yeguete (knee) also are dealing with injuries.
"A team that's able to bounce back and play a really good game with some of their best players out, that shows a lot about their team," said center Pat Young, who scored 14 points Saturday.
