PD’s Perspectives: The Streak
When you watch the Florida Gators this year, even without knowing they have been ranked in the top 10 throughout the year, you know you are watching something special. A special team with a special opportunity. Florida has been playing at a very high level and but for a couple of brief, though costly, spells of sloppiness, have maintained that high level against strong competition this year. I thought as the SEC schedule gets into full swing, it was a good time to try to find the proper perspective with which to view their current streak.
Streak? They are on a streak? Many may not have even realized that the Gators basketball team is on a big win streak. After all, seems like we just lost a couple of contests. But that was eight games ago. At the national elite level of Billy Ball, is a mere seven-game win streak really a significant achievement? Whether it is or not, the margins of victory over this streak surely have caught many eyes across the nation, prompting some to put Florida squarely in the conversation as possibly the best team in the country or at least one with a very strong case for the Final Four and national title possibilities. Seven straight beat downs against quality foes. Does it mean anything at this point in the season?
