But the Gators worked their way back thanks to lockdown defense and clutch 3-pointers from Boynton and Mike Rosario.
Florida’s three starting guards get the publicity, but they’re not the ones that make the Gators go. Billy Donovan tabbed Patric Young as that guy in recent weeks because of the energy he brings to the court. While the sophomore is battling an ankle injury that his limited his minutes in recent games, Young is feeling healthy and ready to give the Gators a spark as they head...
