Florida’s record-setting run through the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA tournament last season will be difficult, maybe even impossible, to top.
Highly touted center Chris Walker is giving Florida “one more year.”
Scottie Wilbekin sat hunched in his locker, his eyes red, his voice hush and his legs still cramping.
The Florida Gators aren’t a perfect basketball team, but you couldn’t tell that by looking at the team’s record as it prepares to play in the NCAA tournament as the top overall seed.
With strands of net behind their ears, Florida seniors Casey Prather, Scottie Wilbekin, Will Yeguete and Patric Young stopped at midcourt and kissed the floor.
Will Yeguete led a strong rebounding effort Saturday by the 16th-ranked Florida Gators, who pulled away in the second half to beat Fresno State 66-49 in the Orange Bowl Classic.
