    For much of the first half of Saturday’s game between No. 3 Florida and No. 14 Kentucky the Wildcats held the lead, with Julius Randle scoring ten points and Kentucky shooting 50% from the field. The Wildcats may have led by just three points at the half but it was clear that Billy Donovan would…

    Missouri v Florida

    The big news of the day for Florida was that stud freshman Chris Walker would be playing his first game as a collegian on Tuesday night. And he did enough to pique the interest of Florida fans, throwing down a couple of alley-oops while grabbing two boards and blocking two shots in limited minutes off…

  4. Florida survives against rival Florida State

    Florida Gulf Coast v Florida

    Ian Miller nearly hit the shot of the season from half court that would have given Florida State a buzzer-beating win over Florida, but the ball clanked off the back of the rim, and the Gators hung on for a good early season victory, 67-66. It was far from a pretty game for Florida. They…

    It took a while, but once No. 11 Florida’s pressure started taking effect, Colgate’s upset bid disappeared, as they lost 86-56 after being tied at the half. The Gators got another monster performance from Casey Prather, who has been phenomenal early on this season, as he went for 27 points, five boards and five assts.…

  8. Florida, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee highlight all-SEC list

    Florida Media Day Basketball

    The 16-player coaches’ preseason All-Southeastern Conference list was revealed on Friday, and I still have a huge problem with a preseason all-conference list containing 16 players. I know some coaches can’t make up their mind (hi, Dana Altman) but last I checked, a traditional all-conference team had five players per team. One for every spot…

  9. Patric Young and the art of the reverse keg stand

    Florida Gators center Patric Young celebrates after being fouled by the Louisville Cardinals in the second half during the NCAA men's West Regional basketball tournament in Phoenix

    Gators forward/center Patric Young is one of the more impressive physical specimens in college ball. He most likely spends plenty of time lifting weights under the care of Florida’s trainer, observes a healthy high-protein/low fat diet and has a well of genetic good fortune undergirding all of the care he’s taking with his body. Of…

Also included: Duke’s Kyrie Irving, Kansas’ Josh Selby, N.C. State’s C.J. Leslie, Memphis’ Will Barton, Syracuse’s Fab Melo and Kentucky’s trio of Brandon Knight, Enes Kanter…
