    We have no data on deep to insanely deep heaves at the buzzer for the "W" with DFS, so comparisons to CP are premature.

    But he does look awfully good doing what he does.

    Strained ligaments are, in fact, nasty things, and due to a limited blood flow in most circumstances, they take a while to heal.

    However, it is rare for an ankle sprain, even a high one, to cripple a basketball player for more than 6 weeks at the longest, and, depending on how quickly an individual heals, sometimes only about 2 - 3 weeks. Hopefully, Hill is q quick healer and will be back within a 3 weeks to month after the injury.

    First, you can tell the degree of ligament sprain on an X-ray by looking at the position of the bones relative to each other, with this type of inversion injury the fibula tends to get pulled anteriorly of the talus and tibia, that can be seen on X-ray

    Second, love the Chandler and Finey-Smith comparisons based on style of play, though I think Chandler was the better ball handler and Finey-Smith appears to be the better passer and rebounder.
    The guy who most reminds me of Chandler, based strictly on how much each player improved after four years under Billy D is obviously Prather; that, in this age of UK hype and one and dones, is a joy to see.

    I hate to be Danny Downer, but it was a good 6 months before my high ankle sprain was fully healed. Granted, I could have played on it before that, but I wouldn't have been full speed, and Kasey's game is all about speed.

    If there is no ligament damage then he didn't have a sprain.

    Fortunately, your case sounds extreme. Donovan made a point of saying that they wanted to let Hill heal as fully as possible before returning precisely because the injury can linger without rest. That's why I suggested it was a question of "when."

    Regardless, it is ridiculous to start talking about our inability to win a national title without Hill in November. Kinda getting ahead of ourselves.

    I love it when I am on Gator Country and when our highly college educated posters express in large medical terms...
    Makes you wonder what happens on an FSU or Alabammy website??

    Our "Big4" are really looking good. Once they are in tune we will see some amazing play.

    The big hole at point guard is badly delaying the Donovan mesh magic.

    They normally upload crayon drawings, with tags like "ainkull n jury."

    Actually, they write on the screen with a crayon, then hit "enter."

    DFS seems more assertive than Parsons who I thought had too much tendency to fade into the background. Maybe DFS is more Milleronian.



    ...or making even a decent pass was what I thought had been missing until the last couple of games. Glad to see him playing so much better now.

    I definitely see the comparisons to Parsons. Agree that he seems a little further along. DFS is a real difference maker and a player that other teams wil not be able to match up against. If he's not already, by season' s end, he may very well be our best player. What's really scary is he's a rs sophmore and I think he will be at UF at least 2 yrs.

    I'm with rserina, DFS is a much better ball handler than Parsons. He skill set reminds me more of a younger Lamar Odom, although he's a couple inches shorter.

    This may be true. Mike Miller might be a more apt comparison.

    Perhaps so, but They all have a pretty similar skill set. Obviously, Miller is a better shooter by far than the other two. But they all have similar body, similar game.

    What's funny is that Miller could go on some ugly stretches here at Florida. At the time, I thought he was a streaky shooter. It didn't dawn on me until I saw Beal go through similar stretches as a freshman that kids wired to shoot just have a hard time adapting to Donovan's system, where you have to read the pick and roll coverages or rotations before shooting.
