PLAYERS: Kenny Boynton
TEAMS: Florida Gators
Kenny Boynton isn’t shy to admit he never thought Wednesday night would happen. Coming to Gainesville as one of the top prep scorers in his class, the American Heritage High School product expected to stick around at Florida for a couple years, leave early and start his career in the NBA.

Rosario experiencing consistent senior year

At any other point in his career, Mike Rosario wouldn’t have handled Saturday with the maturity he showed. The redshirt senior was taking bad shots and being careless with the ball against Alabama, so Florida head coach Billy Donovan put him on the bench for the last 12 minutes of the game.

It is a mixed bunch in the secondary this spring for the Florida Gators. No new freshmen in the mix and so everyone is back and pretty much knows what they are doing in the Muschamp defense.
