    Florida is on the road again tonight at 7 PM on ESPN2. I hope we see continued improvement and continue on the the semis.

    Rivals article on GW:
    https://florida.n.rivals.com/news/1...-george-washington-uf-s-upcoming-nit-opponent
    My takes:
    3. GW is 68th nationally in RPI and 66th in Ken Pomeroy's team rankings, with the 88th most difficult schedule in the country this season. Meanwhile, Florida is 55th, 39th and 5th in those respective categories. UF had 5th toughest SOS
    5. GW's starting lineup is overall a more experienced group than what the Gators have to offer. Three of its starters - forward Kevin Larsen and guards Patricio Garino and Joe McDonald - are seniors, while Cavanaugh is a redshirt junior and guard Yuta Watanabe is a sophomore. KenPom.com ranks George Washington as the 26th most experienced team in the country. UF is 288th in that category. We're a young team
    7. The Colonials are efficient from both three-point range and the free-throw line - two areas where UF has been inconsistent in Mike White's first season at the helm. GW is 37% from downtown (58th in nation) and 75.5% on free throws (18th nationally). The Gators are 32% (289th) from behind the arc and 64.3% (331st) from the charity stripe. We can't shoot for schist
    8. GW fares much better on the offensive side of the ball than on defense. The Colonials are 43rd nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency but 132nd in defensive efficiency, per KenPom.com. UF is 89th and 19th in those respective categories. We play good D

    Go Gators!

    So I decided to head over to the game. I'll see if the new GC app allows me to post some pix. And I'll yell real loud from section 209, row A seat 5. Lots of Gators hanging around outside

        At the under 16 timeout Florida is up 9-6. Sloppy play early. Have hit 3 jumpers already but missed 4 others. Made some really bad passes as well. Good energy to start on the road though.

        9 to 6 we are quicker than they are. Where the hell was Kasey Hill all year. He can now shoot the ball somewhat. My daughter would be there (lives there ) but she is sick.

        At the under 12 timeout Florida is tied at 17. Leaving guys wide open on jumpshots. Almost all of their pts seem to be on open jumpers. Need to be tougher on d.

          At the under 8 timeout Florida up 21-19. Leon and Hill taking a lot of shots. Hill still making a decent percent of them.

            GW has quick big men that can shoot. Good minutes for our young bigs.

            Florida down 3 at the under 4 timeout. Getting abused when we playing defense. I'd like to see them press, but looks like we have stopped that for the season
