Florida Gators guards Locke, Glover enter transfer portal

The Florida Gators lost two players to the transfer portal on Thursday in Noah Locke and Ques Glover.

This comes just a day after sophomore point guard Tre Mann announced his intention to enter the NBA Draft and hire an agent.

A three-year starter for the Gators, Locke averaged 29.0 minutes per game in the 2020-21 season while scoring 10.6 points per game and grabbing 2.4 rebounds. He led the team with 57 made three-pointers this season, shooting at a 40.4 percent clip from beyond the arc.

His three-point shooting was slightly down from 43.2 percent as a sophomore. Locke set the Florida record for three-pointers by a freshman with 81 in 2018-19.

Glover’s production and minutes decreased in his sophomore season as he averaged just 2.5 points and 0.8 rebounds per game, down from 4.4 and 1.0 a season ago. He did not start a game this season, and did not play at all in the final four contests.

With Mann, Locke and Glover gone, the Gators are down to just three scholarship guards left on the roster in Tyree Appleby, Scottie Lewis and Niels Lane.

Mike White signed four-star guard Kowacie Reeves to the 2021 class, but will almost certainly have to bring in more transfers to counter the losses this offseason.

Florida is just four days removed from an upset loss in the Round of 32 to Oral Roberts. The Gators finished the 2020-21 season with a 15-10 record.
