    Tyus returning to Israel

    That was interesting, didn't know that about Tyus.

    It's too bad that the 2011 Florida team did not make it in to the Final4 that year; if they had, anything could have happened. I felt that many of the front-court players' game (i.e, Alex Tyus, Vernon Macklin, & Parsons) on that team was surging to another level.

    With Corey Brewer now as a free agent, this former Gator could stay in Denver or be re-united with Al Horford in Atlanta or with another Gator in Houston. Hmmm.

    Free agent Brewer and his pursuers

    "Parsons and Tyus were the only two from the class to stick it out for all four seasons. Both helped bring the UF basketball program back to respectability. Fans shouldn’t forget that Tyus was a big part of UF’s Elite Eight run in 2011 that only fell short of the Final Four because of corrupt officiating. He still holds the share of the UF record for rebounds in an NCAA Tournament game, finishing with 19 points and 17 rebounds in Florida’s 83-74 overtime Sweet 16 win over BYU."

    There. Fixed it for Brockaway.

    That 2010-2011 Elite Eight defeat was the one that hurt the most, simply because we could very well have won the title that year. 2011-2012 would have just ended with us losing to Kentucky again, and this last season was just an unholy beating.

    That sounds right. His wife played volleyball for UF.
