MEMPHIS, Tenn.– Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin may have earned SEC player of the year honors but there was a time when such an accomplishment didn’t seem possible. In the offseason before the 2014 year got underway Wilbekin was challenged by Florida head coach Billy Donovan to either change or transfer following disciplinary issues. Wilbekin spoke to the media before Florida’s Elite Eight matchup against Dayton about that time in his life as well as helping interior defenders with perimeter defense.

Richard lives in Gainesville and prides himself in being a bonafide lifelong Alachua County Resident. He attends the University of Florida and is in his third year studying Telecommunications. He isn’t sure how he started loving football being the son of two immigrants that don’t care about the sport, but he has developed a borderline unhealthy obsession with it. In his free time, Richard watches other sports and is an avid fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and Tampa Bay Rays. He doesn’t like chocolate, knows Moe’s is better than Chipotle and drinks way too many Arnold Palmers. He also took up golf in the summer of 2012. That pursuit isn’t going well.
