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...

Gators' Frazier, Yeguete could be back soon

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...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Donovan Expecting Healthier Team

Certainly Florida has had its reasons for not exactly bringing their A-game to the opponent in the last two road contests. The Gators stand at 22-5 on the year, but have lost two out of the last three and both on the road. More than anything, Billy Donovan has been missing a full complement of his roster. That seems to be changing for the better.
