Gator basketball info going vs Marquette

Postby rogdochar » Tue Nov 27, 2012 1:53 am

Gators ranked #7. Marquette not ranked. Marquette lost to Butler
by 1 point & Butler beat #14 UNC by 10 points.

Gators ave. 72.2 points/game, 30 rebounds/game .
turnover margin +3.8 ..... rebound margin +10.6
We need to up our FG% from 46% and up our 3-pt% from 35.6%.
Marquette game is in Gainesville, Thursday .... 9pm .. ESPN2. Go Gators
This game could be a good gauge of our strength. Fingers crossed .

Marquette is a really solid, well coached basketball team that's flying under the radar right now. They might not be ranked, but they are better than Wisconsin for sure.

This is going to be a great rematch of last years sweet 16 game and a true test for this years Gator squad. I'll be in the Rowdy Reptile section cheering the Gators on!

I'm looking forward to seeing how we match up against Marquette. They've had a lot of attrition to deal with coming into this season. They'll have their hands full trying to compete with the Gators in Gainesville.

Agree that Marquette is a solid team, but that we should win going away.
It is basketball and all it takes is for them to get hot and us to go cold; but with it being in the O-Dome and our experienced lineup, we should not lose this game.
Going to FSU and Zona, and then KSU in KC, should be tougher tests for the Gators. We're got a tough stretch of OOC games ahead of us that will be good for the team in the long run and for the committee to look at come March.

Your lucky people living so close to the school. Man if I lived down there I would go to just about every Gator event played
If you would like to keep your coach you can

Notice good stats for Prather's 1st game back :

Prather: 13 minutes : FG 3-3 3Pts 0-0 FT 2-2 = 8 pts. Total 4 rebounds

Rosario: 20 minutes : FG 2-5 3Pts 0-4 FT 0-0 = 4pts. Total 3 rebounds

Keep watch on Rosario, hitting only 2/9 shots 22% last game (4 pts.)
can hurt the team when hotter shooters could take better % shots.
Wilbekin hits close to 45%
Murphy, 54.5%
Young, 52.8%
Yeguete, 57.9%
Rosario, 41%
Prather hitting 100% 1st game back seems that he'll be near 50% too.
Rosario shot attempt #s close to Boynton's #s. When he's off (often)
he should pass more, set up others more. Let others have more shots.

I know Rosario's reputation is he's a hot shooter, but all last season
he took too many shots when he was off & other teammates were on.
It just bears watching, especially in tightly contested games, where
every offensive trip to the basket is crucial. Against UCF he shot 22%.

Prather looked great! He had tons of energy and a couple of those rebounds were strong!

Glad he's back.

Florida opens at a 10.5 favorite.
