Gator Basketball Gets A Huge Win At Xavier
This is a good win for the Gators. They actually stopped the second longest winning streak in the country at Xavier. Kansas holds the number one winning streak at home.
But, I like what the Gators showed me a lot yesterday. And, even though Walker had 6 turnovers he was clutch the down the stretch hitting 6 free throws and a three to put the game away. I like the toughness that this team is showing. Parsons had a good overall game and the rest of the starters were in double figures.
Coach Donovan seems to have a nine man rotation going with Murphy, Wilbekin, Yeguite, and Young getting a lot of minutes.
I think this team can really make some noise in the SEC and the eventual NCAA tournament. That why it's so frustrating to see them lose to a lesser opponent. I think what we are seeing though is one of Coach Donovan masterful coaching jobs. Maybe this team will mature and peak at the right time. Awesome win!!!!
Now, let's enjoy this one Gatornation and get ready for some football today.
Update On Lacrosse From Gatorsports....3/20
The No. 10 Florida lacrosse team battled against a quick, aggressive Syracuse squad to defeat the No. 11 team in the country, 16-11, in front of 937 fans at Donald R. Dizney Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Gators were led by sophomore attacker Ashley Bruns (Ellicott City, Md.), who tied her career-high and her own school record with six goals while adding an assist for a season-high seven points. Florida also saw hat tricks from sophomore midfielders Kitty Cullen (Rockville, Md.) and Brittany Dashiell (Bel Air, Md.).
Sophomore attacker Janine Hillier (Farmingdale, N.Y.) tied her career high in points with four (2 goals, 2 assists), adding two draw controls. Sophomore attacker Caroline Chesterman (South Nyack, N.Y.) scored and added an assist while sophomore midfielder Jamie Reeg (Atlantis, Fla.) scored her first goal of the season.
The Gators were a perfect 4-for-4 from free position and outshot the Orange, 27-20. Florida won the battle on the draw, 18-10, continuing the Gators’ streak of winning the game when out-drawing their opponent. Chesterman and Dashiell each had a team-high four draw controls, which is Chesterman’s career high.
“The draw is so important,” Florida head coach Amanda O’Leary said. “When you possess the ball, they can’t score. Those 18 draws were critical because we needed possession of the ball. Their attackers are such threats and if you give them an inch, the ball is going in the back of the net.”
