JACKSONVILLE, FL (RNN) - Florida senior guard Scottie Wilbekin will be in action for the first time this season when the Gators take on Jacksonville on Monday night.

The No. 16 Gators (4-1) were without Wilbekin for the first five games of the season following a suspension because of an undisclosed violation of team rules. He averaged 9.1 points per game during the 2012-13 season.

Florida is coming off of three straight wins at home. They most recently pounded Middle Tennessee University 79-59 on Thursday. They are 0-1 for road games so far this season, losing to No. 20 Wisconsin back on Nov. 12.

The Gators are still without freshman guard Kasey Hill, who suffered a sprained ankle during a home game against Southern University.

The Dolphins (2-3) are coming off a close 76-72 win against Florida A&M. Marcel White led Jacksonville with 16 points.

Tipoff at Veterans Memorial Arena is at 7 p.m. ET. It will air on ESPN 3.
