    Casey Prather started his senior season strong leading the short handed Gators to a 77-69 win over the North Florida Ospreys. Casey scored a career high 28 points and had 8 rebounds to earn 102 value credits. Michael Frazier II had a very strong game with 19 points and 9 rebounds to earn 86 credits despite feeling the effects of mono. Kasey Hill de'buted at point guard scoring 15 points and handing out 4 assists to earn a very respectable value score of 64.

    The win was nothing to write home about with Billy harping on the bad team defense. Carter and Yeguete are still recovering from injuries and three other key players were suspended for smoking, err, breaking team rules.

    Frazier's line may be even more impressive since he did it in only 24 minutes.

    Our big men should have been able to score at will. Young having so few attempts is a concern. Really want to see him scoring 13-15 points a game, which will open things up on the wing. We don't have elite 3 point shooters (until MF2 gets back to form).

    The unbelievable free throw improvement will help us win LOTS of games. Casey & Pat are on a different planet than they were last year. They look more comfortable and relaxed at the line. Huge by Billy.

    Patric's lack of scoring was a failure of the others to feed the post. We really gotta work on that. Our best teams have always been inside-out in nature. For his part, Pat really needs to grab rebounds. He had some foul trouble, but still should have had 9 or 10 rebounds.

    Casey now needs to start working on 10 to 15 foot shots. Teams will be working to cut him off from the hoop now, so he's got to make them pay if they do. His best shot yesterday was one when he pulled up and shot one in from the middle lane, about 8 feet. Outstanding play.

    Free-throw shooting was terrific yesterday. Now we need to see if that's indicative of the team or an aberration.

    Great Planet - "...an aberation."

    It appears that this year, given the rule changes, free throws and depth will be more important than in prior years. Right now, the Gators are playing with 3 fully healthy regulars Young, Prather and Hill, one of whom is trying to lead a complex offense with almost no experience and very little practice playing 5 on 5.

    So far, the Gators have shot 7 of 35 from the 3-point line (20%), while giving up about 90% shooting by opponents. Hopefully, by mid SEC season, the team will begin to work into shape.

    So many newcomers makes it difficult to play either coordinated team defense or offense. Thus, when everyone is eligible and healthy, the best team the Gators can put on the floor will likely be Young, Yeguete, Prather, Frazier and Wilbekin, because they are all pretty familiar with each other, all play very good defense, all rebound reasonably well, and there is enough scoring to earn respect.

    Just watched the game on espn3

    The good: Prather!, Michael Frazier for his offense and his rebounding, Jacob Kurtz for his defense but not his offense, Kasey Hill to the hoop, the free throw shooting

    The bad: Wil and Pat both continue to miss easy shots right at the hoop, the three point line on offense and defense
