Yeah, we are not that good of a bball team. That is why are kept on sliding down in ranking even after a win. A more reasonable goal now is the SEC tournament and not the NCAA tourney.

we did not score the last 7 plus minutes. At that time we had a 7 point lead.

Im really hoping that the 2 big men transfers are really good...or just better than Young. And the 2 freshmen coming in plus Frazier replacing Rosario and Boynton will be nice too. Hopefully Yeguette can have a fully healthy season. I actually have really high hopes next year. This year....no expectation for the first time all year. If they don't win another game all year I will not be surprised one iota.

You don't close out the last 7:30 minutes without major suckage.

We peaked too soon this year.

I know Chris Walker is a big power forward. I did not know we had another
big player coming. Can you find their names?
Young needs another power guy playing next to him this year.

Good point. :lol:

I've also said it plenty this year, there are exactly zero true road games left. We'll be fine.

I too will support the Gators under pretty much any circumstance, but you have to admit, this team has some serious flaws:

-We rely too heavily on the three
-Can't hit free throws
-Can't close out games

None of these issues have been addressed the entire season and all three played a major role in today's loss. Issue #3 is actually easily correctable though, don't let Boynton shoot the ball within 5 minutes of a half.

The point guard Kasey Hill is the other big name. We should have a better team next year (at least from a talent perspective), but I wouldn't be surprised if both kids are one and done. I hope Young returns to polish up his game though.

We've shot far fewer threes than normal since the Missouri game, and the free throw shooting has improved a TON the last few games, as well. Hell, we won the Bama game mainly because of free throws. Closing out games is an issue, I'll agree on that.

We failed to pound the ball inside with Cauly-Stein playing with 4 fouls.

Well, for one thing Kentucky outhustled the Gators and forced turnovers. Their big man put some defensive pressure on Young and Young couldn't deal with it and missed shots. KB made several inside drives during the game but missed the wide open shot down the stretch when we had to have it. Rosario turned it over several times either by bad passes or getting stripped by KY. Wilbekin is okay sometimes but just not consistently a play maker with some determined D in his face, missed that take to the hole at the end taking it in too close to the KY big man. Scotty made a wild pass to Prather when a more touch pass would have done. Prather got too frantic at the end on his attempts. It's really a case of losing poise.Ive seen them do better and they're capable of it, but they didn't this time. They're a tournament team, especially when they're shooting well, but I can't see them as a final four team. imo. Young has to see now that he needs to stay another year and with the transfer bangers and Yeguette and Prather and the "one and done" freshman coming in, that is going to be some solid inside depth. Things look good for the future.

I can't believe people actually use Bama as an example of something good. :lol: We should have never been behind in that game.

As much as folks hate "the cats, the rats" coming out, it's just as painfully horrible to hear the sunshine pumpers.

Right now, a few things need to happen for us to even have a chance to get past the first round: Wilbekin needs to realize he's got to calm down and get everyone involved when the game is on the line...throwing these circus shots is just not going to win us game! Rosario needs to stop thinking and reading these articles on himself. He'll only be remembered by his play down the stretch not by what happened 2 weeks ago. Young needs to throw it down when he's around the Basket...Shaq made it to the NBA throwing it down dude! Boynton needs to get back to driving the ball as he did last year...get to the fool line man! Also, Wilbekin needs to stop improvising when things break down...give it to the inside guys if all else fails and let them work the ball back out!

On a good note, Murphy and Prater are the most consistent players now...Maybe they can coach the others a bit!! Lastly, I hope Yguete and Frazier can get back their confidence..These 4 are our best players now.

Most of the turnovers I saw were unforced. Rosario likes to hand the other team the F'in ball.

One more thing...this team has a deer in the headlights look towards the end of game...you'd think that BD would have figured it by now. Unfortunately, trying too hard is not going to fix it...I think they need to get back to basic BB and stop playing like they are in their backyard...to me, it all comes down to ball movement..they had none today during that 7 minute stretch!

Damontre Harris, 6'10 transfer from South Carolina sitting out this year, and Dorian Finney-Smith, 6'8 transfer from Va Tech.

Harris has 2 years of eligibility, Finney-Smith 3.
