    Devon Walker sat out. Chris Walker still not here yet. Kasey not 100%.

    Only 20-34 on free throws.

    Prather 1-5 (million free throws at the end)
    Frazier 1-4
    Kasey 1-3.

    Yet we still won comfortably. They never got closer than 4.

    By the way, Kansas' adjusted points per possession coming into the game was 1.149, 14th in the country.

    We held them to .92. They were holding opponents to .94 and we scored 1.03. Not great offensively but outstanding defensively.

    Any chance of Harris coming back for SEC play?

    We have a very high ceiling, and the nice thing is that we are nowhere near that ceiling. Makes it much easier for Billy to coach!

    A major key to a long run is Patric Young providing energy and staying out of foul trouble. He was a force in the first half, not so much in the second. Having Harris not only as his backup but to practice against would be big, but I am not holding my breath

    And the first time this season Wilby and Hill played together.

    I doubt it regarding Harris, but why did D Walker sit out? Although admittedly, Wilbekins 36 minutes, Frazier's 24 and Hill's 21 cover the required 80 for the guards.

    Because Walker has been injured all year. Once everyone is healthy, watch out.

    I think Kansas got rattled because we are one of the best defenses in the nation. Was so amazing in the ODOME tonight man I love it! Offense seemed off a bit but I think we just struggled with that massive guy inside and Wiggins really did well vs Prather. Wilbekin is a stud...our offense will develop soon. When it does, everyone else might as well toss in the white towel. DFS finally got it going, Wilbekin is now a threat, Young has played strong two straight games vs great teams..Frazier needs to find a way to stop disappearing and Prather won't be held like that again...that's why we are dangerous though. Our two top scorers struggled all night, and we won. That's the sign of a great team. Go Gators.

    The backcourt with Wilbekin and Hill together is nasty. I have absolutely no concerns about outside shooting.

    We have shown that we can win ugly when need be. This is critical in the tourney and keeps you in games when your shot isn't falling.

    We've only had a few pretty games so far lol. It's not because the ability isn't there though, it's been such a crazy roster right now it's hard to get the flow going. I think by conference play we can find our footing and these guys will be very fluid. With our defense, we only need 70+ on most nights because Billy can straight up coach a defense. Even if every freaking team we play hits insane three pointers that no one should make(seriously, it's getting old seeing teams make absurd three's). Last year we ended the year with Ole Miss and Henderson making stupid ones, then the kid from Michigan simply didn't miss..UConn hit ridiculous three's and so did Wiggins today. Someone upstairs is angry at UF, I swear lol.

    Maybe but I don't think Kentucky is better than Kansas is right now. Don't think you guys need to see anything else to know this team is legit.

    Seeing what this team is doing against fully healthy, highly ranked teams with key pieces missing on UF's side makes me think that you have to put them in the discussion for the best team in the nation when healthy.

    When at 100%, I think Billy has the best roster of experienced leaders mixed with talented youth.

    I think we need to get more consistent offensively, but the potential is there. I see this team being a monster defensively when everyone learns to play together.

    Now we just gotta work on the FT shooting and being smart enough not to pass it to Young in a 1-and-1 situation.

    I think you are right. The talking heads, though, during the UK halftime show kept talking about poor, young Kansas and were making excuses. It's pretty pathetic at the heights they will go to excuse the other team and short sell us.
