GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) --No. 8 Florida has been through this before -- all year really. The Gators will be without two key backups at Tennessee on Tuesday night, the latest injuries woes for coach Billy Donovan's team. Guard Michael Frazier II (concussion) and forward Will Yeguete (knee) will miss the game, but could be back Saturday against Alabama. Frazier sustained a concussion last Saturday against Arkansas when he went head-first into Scottie Wilbekin's knee while chasing a loose ball. Yeguete had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Feb. 8 to remove loose bodies. Their absences will leave the Gators (22-4, 12-2 Southeastern Conference) short-handed against the Volunteers (16-10, 8-6). That's nothing new for Donovan, who's become accustomed to juggling his roster this season. Florida already has played without point guard Wilbekin (suspension), guard Mike Rosario (ankle), forward Casey Prather (concussion, ankle) and forward Erik Murphy (broken rib). The resul...

Yeguete, Frazier cleared to return for Florida

Florida coach Billy Donovan is cautiously optimistic about his team's health. Forward Will Yeguete and guard Michael Frazier II were cleared to practice and play Thursday, giving Donovan a full complement of players heading into Saturday's game against Alabama. It's the first time in three weeks the eighth-ranked Gators (22-5, 12-3 Southeastern Conference) have been...

Updates on Frazier, Yeguete injuries

The hope for Florida was to get the entire team healthy by the time the SEC Tournament started. For a team that has been banged up with multiple injuries throughout the season, it looks like the Gators could get back to their trusted eight-man rotation as early as Saturday. Michael Frazier and Will Yeguete could return when the Gators host Alabama this weekend.

Video: Florida's Casey Prather leaves game with gash on head

Florida's trip to Knoxville on Tuesday was a rather painful one.Billy Donovan's Gators fell to the Volunteers by a score of 64-58 and dropped to 1-7 in their last eight road games at Thompson-Boling Arena.However, no Florida player felt the sting of this loss more than Casey Prather, who was forced to leave the game with just under three minutes to go after suffering a head...

Gators drop in polls

Florida fell to No. 8 in the Associated Press Poll and No. 6 in the Coaches’ Poll following a loss at Missouri on Tuesday. The Gators now start a tough week at Tennessee on Tuesday and then hosting Alabama on Saturday.

Florida falls in Knoxville

The Gators made the trip to Knoxville undermanned. With a six-man rotation and a couple other inexperienced freshmen off the bench, Tuesday was already set as a challenge for No. 8 Florida. The two freshmen totaled 10 minutes while the Gators elected to go mostly with a six-man rotation. Three players were on the court for over 35 minutes as the Gators lost 64-58 to Tennessee.

Watch: The NFL according to British Teenagers

I was strolling through the internet this evening and came across a video that made my night. Here’s a video that has gone viral of British Teenagers talking about the NFL and it’s quite hilarious! Perhaps my favorite part is when they’re asking about football terminology and the lad in the Florida Gators (the Alma Mater of one Tim Tebow) sweater is asked about Tebow, and he...

Volunteers playing better than their record

The Gators travel to Knoxville to face a Tennessee team that boasts a 16-10 record and is 8-6 in Southeastern Conference play. Those numbers don’t tell the entire story. The Volunteers have won five straight games and seven of their last nine. The Gators have won just one of their last seven trips to Knoxville, and they’ll be challenged with a short bench on Tuesday night.

Gators face challenge after Frazier goes down

GAINESVILLE, Fla. When the Gators are at full strength, which has not been often this season, Billy Donovan has a solid eight-man rotation upon which he can rely. He used only seven players in the Gators' 71-54 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at the O'Connell Center, still adjusting to life without junior forward Will Yeguete, who missed...

Disciplined offense dominates the paint

The Gators learned a lesson on Tuesday. At least that’s what Florida head coach Billy Donovan hopes that Saturday’s outcome showed. The Gators launched three-point attempts without hesitation at Missouri, and in the end, the reliance on the perimeter was the team’s undoing. Saturday’s conference win over Arkansas showed the Gators can still go inside when they need points in the paint.

Dastrup Really Enjoys Florida Experience

He isn’t your normal superstar basketball prospect in many ways. He’s humble, sincere, spiritual, but he’s also versatile on the court. His style of play is something that fits Billy Donovan and the Florida Gator style to a tee. Payton Dastrup is a 6-10, 230 pound nationally fifth ranked center and he got to see Florida basketball first-hand this past weekend.
