    Wow, Greg Stolt. He was playing 2nd string, but on today's team, he would very rarely, if ever see the floor, despite the fact that he was a good shooter.

    Notice how in those days, Donovan rotated a lot of players. This was also true his first year, when he had very few players, and Brent Wright and Major Parker were freshmen. Wright, despite being a physically weak 215 lbs, was forced to start because the team was simply so weak in talent.

    I have a special fondness for the Weaks, Wright, J Will, Shannon, Stolt, etc teams. They are my first memories of Gator basketball since I was 15 or 16 in 1998 and just starting to really pay attention to sports on TV.

    Some of you may have realized, but that 1999 2/04 game on this site, is also a bit entertaining from a Gator point of view ;)
