    Florida takes on Vanderbilt tomorrow at 8 PM EST on SECN. Naming the court for Billy Donovan at halftime. Big time game for us to get some confidence going into the last few weeks. Lots of former players in attendance as well

    GO Gators!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I think our guys should have a "players only" meeting with Donavan. Without White present, I would love a secret recording of the Q & A.
      Then Donovan needs a secret meeting at White's home. Watch film and get pointers.

          So, we got Vandy at home with honoring Billy Donovan by naming the court after him. Hope that improves our play.
          At 8 pm === first game back on Feb 1 ............ KJ scored 20 ...... next Nembhard

          Donovan will be courtside? Let's learn from Donovan what we need to know = is he taller than White?
          Perhaps Donovan knows an NBA forward player that is thinking about coaching college?
          Just think about some retiree like Nowinski guiding Gators.

          We've got Blackshear our leading scorer at 13.5 ............KJ at 13.3 ..... Nembhard at 12 ... Now that ought to instill fear in Vandy.

          Jitoboh averages 9 minutes per game. He's foul-prone but has he been coached diligently? Against aTm Jitiboh played 9 minutes had 4 fouls. And Payne ... FT% .... 39.3% ...... Jitoboh ...... FT% .... 38.5% .... I guarantee those guys could raise their FT% by the next game. Underhanded the release point for a tall guy, leaning forward that release point is nearly 2-ft closer. Less arc distance to visualize, lesser distance for the ball to veer off. Payne and Jitoboh should be able to gauge the trajectory more consistently. With those 2 big men shooting 50% (still terrible) we'd get probably 6-8 more points per game and their pride would soar. Just have them shoot for 30 minutes in 2 practices.

                Florida is up 5-2 at the under 16 timeout. Lots of fouls early and a little slow

                Glad Payne is in. Expert gave a "lecture" about how stupid it is to keep out a leader with 2 fouls. ?? He said count on your star to avoid fouls but still be plenty useful.???

                Ugly game right now on offense. Defense holding strong

                  Florida is up 13-5. Slow pace right now with lots of fouls. Need to settle down on offense and hit some shots. Mann and Glover need to step up

                  How do you stop a guy driving full speed and you are ahead & ready but the refs are tilted toward calling a foul on the defender?

                  Florida is up 21-11 at the under 8 timeout. Blackshear to the line. Gonna have to fight through the fouls both way this game

                  Gators up 10 at the 8 minute timeout. Refs horrible with very questionable calls against the Gators that even the announcers are saying they are terrible calls against UF. Vandy always plays us tough so this will be a close game like a couple of weeks ago vs Vandy.
