    Gators basketball returns tonight at 8pm on the SECNetwork. Gators a 16.5 point favorite. Let's see how our guys respond to the crap game they played Monday night vs FSU. Can we do better rebounding? Can we hit shots? Can we limit turnovers? Will we get some players more playing time? Will the Haters and Complainers show up if its a rough game for us?? Go Gators!!

    This game is coming at the right time. This team needs an easy win to get their heads back together. I have a feeling they are going to come out and really destroy Loyola-Chicago and they should!

    They have a tough game against a good Cincy on Saturday and have to play Clemson before a SEC schedule that will be much tougher. They need to get focused.

    Need to score 130 to get back on pace for our 100 point average. Let’s see if our boys are up to it.

    I don't know what to expect after the last 8 minutes of the dook game and the entire FSU fiasco, but you would expect that facing an out-manned team, that we should cruise to the win.

    We can fix the turnover issue, that was only an issue in the FSU game. We actually take care of the ball very well and are a great passing team. We were awful in the FSU game..

    We've been manhandled by any bigs we've faced this year and that's not fixable until Eggy is back. The current solution to that is draining threes.

    We are amazing when we're shooting well and that's a nightly 50/50 deal.

    We're used to being more athletic than the opponent, even Duke, with the exception of their super-freak. That wasn't the case against SOW so they were able to really disrupt our game, especially on the perimeter passing and shooting 3's, and destroyed us inside with offensive rebounding. If we played them again right now I don't really see much reason to expect a different outcome with our current roster and the way White was using the rotation. They're under-rated and are going to be a match-up problem for a lot of teams, but they always seem to play above their level when they play us (which is what you're supposed to do against a Rival, right?). I don't remember getting embarrassed like that by them before. I wouldn't mind meeting them again in the tourney when we are at full strength though. Knocking them out of the NCAA's would be very satisfying.

    I like the idea someone proposed of bringing Egor off the bench and hopefully we see that tonight..

    That sounds delightful. Starting to really hate that SOW.

    We need to score a Dubya to get back to our winning ways.

    Will White start an actual basketball team is the key question to me. If the starting lineup include 3 guards and a small 4, then I will have further doubts.

    Florida takes on Loyola-Chicago tonight at 8 PM on SECN. We need a huge bounce back game and so the passion and intensity we saw against Duke for 30 min. Hopefully, we see improved play the bigs and made shots by the guards!!!!!!!!

    Florida down 8-4 at the under 16 timeout. Offense and D look bad as expected. Hayes was benched 2 min in as well. Complete cluster right now

    I don’t think we’ve forced an empty possession yet.

    White may have lost us another game. Crap starting lineup to send a message gave LIC all the confidence and they can't miss now. On top of going back to 4 guard lineups that has given up 3 offens in ve board already. Another blowout loss this time to a midmajor is happening. Team still not motivated on defense and reb
