Basketball practice has finally begun for the Florida Gators and now Coach Billy Donovan and his staff get to find out how to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together. The Florida staff really likes that there are so many multi-positional players. If there is a way for the Gators to compensate for a lack of a post presence other than Marreese Speights the answer might come in the form of creating mismatches all over the floor that force opponents into odd lineups.
This might be the best shooting team that Billy Donovan has ever had. Certainly, it’s the best since 2000 when the Gators had sharpshooters like Mike Miller, Teddy Dupay, Brett Nelson, Kenyan Weaks and Matt Bonner. This team has legitimate three-point shooters in Walter Hodge, Dan Werner, Nick Calathes, Chandler Parsons, Jai Lucas and Adam Allen.
