Wilbekin and Hill were both coming off ankle injuries to play in that game.
PY played a great game defensively on Embiid.
No, no, and yes Prather played. Wilbekin had a fantastic game against Kansas, maybe the best of his career. Kansas had an awful first half and could not solve the 1-3-1 we played against them. UF was up 15 or 16 at half time. In the second half the lead hovered from 8-12 points pretty much throughout. Kansas started fouling with about 2 and a half minutes left and it was a free throw parade for UF from then on. Wiggins got hot very late and started throwing in long 3s but UF was able to make enough free throws to win by 6
Lunardi is incredibly good at guessing who gets in the tourney. Terrible at seedings.
And Kentuky in a 2 seed at this point in time is just dumb.
Agreed, I like our chances more in the Midwest bracket...
My thing is less about the schedule and more about the Gators stomping Kansas. I can't see the selection committee putting a team with two more losses and the head to head loss an entire seed above the Gators.
Obviously I am with you here as well. I think it is possible that they could be a cut above us by then, but the reverse is certainly possible as well.
I agree that the much better comment is probably too much.
Chris Walker might improve what is a pretty good team??
In terms of growth/improvement: The same (actually healthier) UF team getting Chris Walker >>> same KU team getting 20ish games of experience.
I would take a March version of Kansas very seriously. I wouldn't forfeit our game against them or anything, but I certainly wouldn't be looking past them either. They did just string together four straight wins against ranked teams, I believe.
Yup, you and I disagree. I tend to lean towards the potential growth in the potential top 2 picks in this year's NBA draft, especially considering how raw they both are. We're not talking Randle or Parker here. Just going by this board alone (full of UF fans), projections for Walker are all over the map as far as his contribution this year - and that's if he's cleared. I lean towards them being significant. But I still lean more heavily towards a young team with the type of talent they have as far as growth potential is concerned. Doesn't mean Florida couldn't still beat them in a 40 minute game.
Well, you are sort of compelled to lean towards a young team with growth potential because that is what Kentucky is as well. It fits Kentucky fans' narrative that Kentucky, like Kansas, will steadily improve all year until the tournament when they will peak and run roughshod over the lesser talented, more experienced teams. Not saying this is wrong, I actually think Kansas deserves their seeding, but I sense some hopeful bias in you.
As others have said, look at the whole picture. Kansas has beaten 4 straight ranked teams, UF only has 2 good wins all year so far.
Another thing worth pointing out: Wisconsin also has 2 losses but beat UF head-to-head, yet they're a #3 seed. You can't judge too much from one game. I think a #2 seed (not in the west) is pretty fair right now.
Good point, honestly.
Being honest myself though, I see how it looks like what you're saying is true and I definitely WAS saying this about UK since this summer. I don't think it to the same degree right now though and not nearly to the degree than I do with Kansas. I'm happy with UK and am having fun watching this year so far, but I'm not as high on their ceiling as I once was. Bad ft shooting, bad 3 point shooting, average defense, etc. I think the ceiling of some of the freshmen isn't as high as I previously thought (mainly the twins). These aren't things I expected and have hampered my expectations to a degree. For this reason I'd now say what you're suggesting isn't the case at this point.
I just don't get all of this bracketology junk......perhaps start this at the end of February...but even then it's silly. I tip my hat to Lunardi he probably makes double what I do to predict this stuff.
REM I'm ok with them struggling I'd like to have some sophomores that can contribute next year!
I would be thrilled with a two seed, unless the Gators finish with three or fewer losses. In that case, we should probably be a one, but the field contains so many moving parts. BTW - WI has lost three.
We've been getting a lot of love from the talking heads
kansas has great starters, but we have great starters...and depth. Take wiggins out and they're an ordinary team.
I hope Lunardi and the others take notice that when fully healthy, Florida is UNDEFEATED...
