Franz Beard’s Basketball Confidential
Look for Florida's first starting lineup to be the three-guard look with Jai Lucas at the point and Nick Calathes and Walter Hodge on the wings with Dan Werner at power forward with Marreese Speights at center. That's the five that will open up Thursday night when the Gators play an exhibition game against Flagler College.
Flagler is coached by UCF’s greatest player of all time, Bo Clark, son of Torchy Clark, who was UCF’s first basketball coach. In addition to basketball, Torchy made a name for himself as a high school football coach in Wisconsin where he coached Rocky Bleier. Flagler will come at the Gators with a front line that measures 6-9, 6-10 and 6-11. That would be good size in Division I. It’s unbelievable size for an NAIA program.
