Scottie Wilbekin injured his right ankle against Connecticut on Dec. 2.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- No. 19 Florida will have Scottie Wilbekin back in the starting lineup and Kasey Hill back in the rotation against 13th-ranked Kansas.

Gators coach Billy Donovan feared both point guards could miss the Big 12-SEC Challenge on Tuesday night.

Wilbekin sprained his right ankle late in last week's loss at Connecticut. X-rays were negative, but the team held Wilbekin out of practice for two days.

Hill missed the last four games after badly spraining his left ankle against Southern on Nov. 18. Donovan says there are no limitations on how much Hill can play against the Jayhawks.

Florida (6-2), which has won 20 consecutive games at home, and Kansas (6-2) are both coming off buzzer-beating road losses. The Gators lost 65-64 at UConn; the Jayhawks lost 75-72 at Colorado.
