GAINESVILLE, Florida (Ticker) -- Every game seems to bring another opportunity for Florida to achieve a milestone.

The top-ranked Gators can tie school records for victories in a season, longest winning streak and home wins Wednesday when they host Alabama in a Southeastern Conference matchup.

Florida (23-2, 10-0 SEC East) looks to match the single-season victory mark set in 2002-2003 and equaled last season en route to an NCAA title. The Gators could also win their 17th consecutive contest for the third time in 15 months.

Coach Billy Donovan can record his 250th victory at Florida by guiding the Gators to their 16th home win, tying the mark set in 1985-1986 and matched last season.

Florida extended its winning streak with Saturday's 64-61 triumph over Kentucky. Corey Brewer scored 16 points and Taurean Green added 13 for the Gators, who limited the Wildcats to 3-of-22 shooting from the arc.

The Crimson Tide (18-6, 5-5 SEC West) have won three of their last four and are in a first-place tie with Mississippi in the SEC West Division.

Alabama had a three-game winning streak snapped with Saturday's 75-69 loss to Ole Miss. Richard Hendrix scored 18 points and Mykal Riley added 16 for the Crimson Tide.

Florida has won 11 of the last 13 encounters against Alabama, including the last six at home.
