Florida Gators basketball notes:
One has to appreciate the unselfish play of the young Gators. The team ranks in the top ten in assists and that leads to their amazing shooting percentage that is hovering around 51%. The only major concerns by the numbers are rebounding margin and turnovers. Joakim Noah and Al Horford can clean the glass, but they will get out-muscled against stronger competition. It isn’t surprising that turnovers are an issue with a team that starts four sophomores, including point guard Taurean Green. Green has done a tremendous job, but I like those experienced senior point guards in high pressure tournament games. Florida has had a bad habit of losing early in recent NCAA Tournaments. With such a young squad and a less than stellar finish, the Gators are on major upset alert.
Likely 2006 NCAA Tournament finish: Second round
