    Against UNF, UF played 10 players including walk-ons Billy Donovan & Jacon Krutz. I think that this time the bench could shorten to only 8-9 total players. Hopefully, Young & Yeguete will play longer than 20 minutes apiece against the Badgers than in their previous game. While Devon Walker had a solid debut as a starter, Florida will need more scoring production from Eli Carter (3 pg) & Young (2ppg, 2 rpg, 2 bpg). The leading scorers for Florida are Prather (28 ppg, 8 rbg), Frazier (19 ppg, 9 rbg), and Kasey Hill (15 ppg, 4 apg). Both Prather and Frazier had career highs in scoring and will need to continue to have high scoring production against the Badgers. This time Florida needs to do a better job of feeding Young, Yeguete, and possibly Prather in the post.

    Florida Stats

    Both Wisconsin & Florida shot 30+ free throws against their opponents. With the new rule to improve offensive play, look for that trend to continue. Good free throw shooting will be the key.

    From the 3-pt line, Wisconsin (11/23) shot the ball extremely well in their last game against St Johns while Florida (2/10) struggled against UNF. Perimeter defense will be another key as well as protecting the rim and rebounding. In their last two games, this group of UF players have not been too great defensively (UF gave up 69 pts against UNF while Wisky scored 86 in their victory). If that trend continues than the only chance for a Florida win is to have another strong offensive game and to play better on defense when closing out a half.


    The Wisconsin Badgers will have the following line-up (relying upon mainly a seven man rotation):

    PG: 6’1 196 Ben Brust (Sr: 15 ppg, 4 rpg, 2 apg)/ 5’11 George Marshall (4 ppg, 1 apg)
    SG: 6’3 190 John Gasser (Jr: 19 ppg, 8 rpg)/ 6’2 208 Traevon Jackson (Jr: 13 pg, 3 rpg, 4 apg)
    SF: 6’7 220 Sam Dekker (So: 16 ppg, 7 rpg, )
    PF: 6’9 220 Duje Dukan (Jr: 15 ppg, 5 rpg)
    C: 7’0 234 Frank Kaminsky (Jr: 2 ppg, 3 rpg, 3 apg)

    Wisconsin Stats

    At times , the Badgers will probably play a 3-guard line-up (Brust, Jackson, Gasser) with Dekker moving inside at PF! The Badgers can also feature a 2-PG attack similar to what Florida should latter do with Wilbekin/Hill. Wisconsin has been lighting it up from the 3-pt line (48%); getting production from (Gasser, Dekker, Brust, Dukan and Jackson). From Florida, who will be the main gunners from 3-pt line? The Gators don't seem to have as many options (i.e, Frazier, Carter, Hill, ?) than in previous years.

    UF – 78, Wisconsin – 74

    In Summary, My Keys to a Florida Win:

    - More scoring production from Eli Carter (3 pg) & Young (2ppg, 2 rpg, 2 bpg).
    - Both Prather and Frazier continue to have high scoring production against the Badgers.
    - Hill & the rest of the team do a better job of feeding Young, Yeguete, and possibly Prather in the post.
    - Good free throw shooting will be the key to getting a high scoring output
    - Perimeter defense will be another key as well as protecting the rim and rebounding.
    - play better on defense & overall when closing out a half.
    - how many 3-pt shots should Florida take in this game? 12-15?

    What are you a wise-guy? :punk::huh:
    Obviously, since the first 3 are suspended and the 4th is still trying to qualify to attend Florida, than the Gators have to do the best that they can with who they got! :ninja::zombie:

    Yep, I am being sarcastic/wise-guy. I sure wish we could play at least the suspended guys.

    Pat and Will need to defend the paint and rebound. If they do that, I think Kasey and Casey might be too quick for Wisconsin, so if they can get into the lane and break the defense down and finish, we just might pull off the win.

    No offense, but Krutz needs to get 0 minutes in this game. Every time he got in the game for us, our offense turned into 4 on 5 and our lead rapidly shrunk. I'm sure he's a good kid, but he's not division 1 level talent much less top 10 talent.

    In the new world of the hand-checking foul...the free-throw man is king.

    Go Gators!!!

    Looks like the money is higher on Florida than Vegas is:

    Given the players who won't be playing, I think our key is to have a lights out shooting night and have them forget how to shoot.

    I'm going to be cheering them on from home, but I don't have any expectation that we will win the game.

    We outsize them pretty well, don't we?
    Their 7-footer looks like a stiff compared to Young too.
    I say we send Prather to the hoop all night and get fouled.

    I think the key to this game is much like most of them will be this year -- get to the rim, make the other team foul you, defend the three and stay out of foul trouble.

    SJU left some of their shooters ridiculously open.

    Tempo, tempo, tempo. Florida in thus case with a small bench will want to take their time and get quality shots. If you can get ahead and rest some of your elite players even just for a minute or two you have a big chance!

    You have some great players and the best coach!

    Put the ball through the white net hanging from the red rim more than the other team

    First and foremost, improved 3 pt defense!!!

    Kasey Hill has to stay out of foul trouble.

    Agree with the above...send prather and frazier to the hoop all night and get fouled. A couple drives by frazier will really open up the 3 pt shooting too. If Eli Carter can hit a couple 3s we should be right in it.

    Who is Jacon Krutz? What is his jersey number?

    Keys to winning are attack the paint and rim. Wisconsin is a program built around physical D and the new rules look they are specifically designed to screw them.

    It's Jacob Kurtz. He's a walk-on wearing #30.

    I think our 'elite' players are either suspended or unqualified. :wave:

    Since North Florida was his 1st real game, Hill had a career high too.

    Sports are hard right now. Gator football is a nightmare. Dolphins football is maybe worse. And we have 3 critical guys suspended in bball. January can't get here quick enough.
