Florida head coach Billy Donovan didn’t know how to say it. He paused, thought a second to himself and decided to go forward with his response to the question. After being asked what has caused the shooting slump for senior guard Kenny Boynton, a shy smile grew on Donovan’s face. He’s not rooting for his four-year starter to struggle from the field, but the shots not falling could be a positive.

Florida-Kansas St. Preview

Even with Kenny Boynton unable to get it together, Florida handily bounced back from its first loss behind another big game from Mike Rosario. The No. 8 Gators may need both senior guards to come out strong Saturday night in Kansas City in what could be a tough test against Kansas State.

Southeastern Louisiana falls 82-43 at Florida

Southeastern Louisiana was prepared to let No. 8 Florida take as many 3-pointers as it wanted. Coach Jim Yarbrough just didn't want his team to get dominated in the paint. He was pleased with the effort, not the result. Brandon Fortenberry scored 15 points, but the Lions were outmatched in every facet of Wednesday night's 82-43 loss to the Gators. ''We are giving...

Florida Gators 82 – Southeastern Louisiana Lions 43; Gators Rebound With Rout Of Lions

Losses are bad; wins are good. Seems simple enough. The Florida Gators–coming off a (learning?) loss–got back in the win column with an 82-43 victory over the Southeastern Louisiana Lions. Florida was led by senior guard Mike Rosario who paced the Gators in almost every offensive category. Rosario had 20 points on 8-for-13 shooting and went 4-for-8 from behind the arc. For...

Gators return to the road

It’s another weekend on the road for No. 8 Florida. After traveling to Tucson to face Arizona last Saturday night, the Gators will travel to Kansas City to face Kansas State on Saturday at 8 p.m. Florida head coach Billy Donovan has never been against traveling, and doing so just before his players go separate ways to spend Christmas with their families might be the best time to...

Rosario accountable, scoring for Florida

From the moment Mike Rosario stepped on campus in Gainesville after transferring from Rutgers, Florida head coach Billy Donovan has been on him. He has spoken publicly about Rosario’s inability to be trustworthy and responsible on and off the court, while questioning his ability to push through injuries. Donovan’s coaching style has shown signs of paying off with Rosario in the...

No letdown for No. 8 Florida

The Gators didn’t waste time getting back in the win column after Saturday’s loss at Arizona. Florida started slow on offense before getting a rhythm and overwhelming Southeastern Louisiana with what turned into a dunk contest in the final minutes.

2013 Basketball Recruiting: Jabari Parker To Duke; Florida Gators Lose Elite Recruit

It appears Billy Donovan and the Florida Gators had too much ground to cover to steal a truly elite recruit from one of the nation’s top programs, Duke. The Blue Devils received the commitment of the No. 2 player in the nation, Simeon’s Jabari Parker. On Thursday, Parker chose Duke over BYU, Michigan State, Stanford, and Florida. Many followers of the Gators’ basketball recruiting...

Cummings Family Ready for UF

I think it's safe to say and most would agree defense wins championships. That was clearly the case this season for the Florida Gators finishing 11-1 on the year.

Will Muschamp has been promoting the same message since his opening press conference when he was named the head coach at Florida. It’s all about the depth and strength on the line of scrimmage.

Muschamp expects all three players to make an impact during the 2013 season.
