There are only four unbeaten teams left in SEC play.

No. 23 Florida (12-3, 3-0) visits Alabama (9-5, 2-0).

Florida is riding a five-game winning streak and getting offensive production from a variety of sources.

Sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen was named the SEC Player of the Week and is averaging 17.4 points during his last seven games, while heating up from the perimeter with 18 3-pointers in the last four contests.

Senior forward Justin Leon, meanwhile, is coming off a career-high 19-point performance Saturday against Tennessee.

And the Gators defense continues to do its part as well, forcing 40 turnovers during the last two games against Ole Miss and Tennessee.

Tide opened SEC play with wins at Mississippi State (68-58) and at home against Vanderbilt (59-56).

They don’t have any individual averaging in double figures.

Dazon Ingram and Braxton Key both average about 10-12 ppg.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Conference wins on the road are hard to come by.

Certainly, No. 23 Florida found that out Tuesday night at Alabama.

Somehow, Florida overcame first-half foul trouble to two starters and some issues on the boards to beat Alabama 80-67 at Coleman Coliseum.

Gators (13-3, 4-0 SEC) won their sixth straight and are off to a 4-0 start in league play for the first time since the 2013-14 season. They couldn't have done it without big contributions from the bench. Redshirt freshman forward Keith Stone scored a team-high 14 points while Canyon Barry added 13 points. Point guard Kasey Hill had 13 points and four assists.

Florida let an 18-point first-half lead slip away, then trailed by as many as six points in the second half before closing the game out strong. Freshman forward Braxton Key was a thorn in UF's side all night, scoring a game-high 24 points for the Crimson Tide (9-6, 2-1 SEC). Alabama also outrebounded UF 37-30 and scored 14 second-chance points.

“There was a lot of adversity,” Florida coach Mike White said.

Allen was held to six points on 2 of 7 shooting.

Avery Johnson said Alabama struggled with traps in practice yesterday, wasn't surprised they struggled in 5 minutes v traps v. Florida
