    Their player that is the leading scorer in the nation has pretty good range, but doesn't seem to force his offense. Hope we can put the defensive clamps on him.

    I remember back in the 70's when it seemed like Oral Roberts had a player lead the nation in scoring every season. Makes me wonder what team has had a player lead the nation in scoring the most times. Could it be Oral Roberts? LSU had 3 straight with Pistol Pete.

    Did the Gators ever have a player lead the nation in scoring? I don't think so, but makes me think of Tony Miller.

    Maybe I'll look it up.... :cool:

    This is what, the 3rd time Florida gets to play a 15 seed that isn’t a 1st round match up? Norfolk State, FL Gulf Coast, and now Oral Roberts? Throw in George Mason and Dayton, who were not 15s but still underdogs, and we should be known as the Cinderella killas!

    Abmas can fill it up and facilitate better than any player we have faced this year. This will be a tough defensive test. I think you just have to put your best defender on him, let him get his 25, but cannot leave other players wide open. He is going to score a lot. Just accept it and make him do it all himself.

    OSU had a bad game. I think they were surprised by ORU's quickness. I know I was. Good fight also, they keep hard at it. Two very good players, we have to try and contain at least one of them. Their starters are used to playing a lot of minutes and have no bench. I would imagine other teams have tried to wear them out and I wonder if any were successful.

    Put Lewis on Abmas and keep putting the ball inside and drive to get the big dude in foul trouble.

    • Florida finds itself in elite company among teams with at least one win in every NCAA Tournament since 2017, joining only Villanova and up to four other potential candidates from Saturday’s slate of games (Gonzaga, Kansas, Michigan, Florida State). Of the 11 teams trying to keep that streak going this year, two did not make the fi eld (Duke, Kentucky) and three lost their first game (Michigan State, North Carolina, Purdue).

    • A duo of All-SEC performers lead the Gators into NCAA Tournament action, with Tre Mann (coaches first team, AP second team) and Colin Castleton (coaches the second team) taking home honors this season. Mann has increased his scoring average +10.6 points per game this season vs. his freshman campaign, just behind Joakim Noah for the largest single-season jump by a Gator over the past 25 years (+10.7, 2005-06).

    • Mann entered the NCAA Tournament on fire, averaging 23.5 points in his four games prior with 20+ points in all four, including a career-best 30 vs. Tennessee in the SEC Tournament.

    • Mann’s 19 points and 13 rebounds at Auburn marked his first career double-double. He followed that with 21 points and eight rebounds at the UK, scoring 11 of Florida’s last 20 points to help secure the victory. Those performances garnered SEC Player of Week honors for Mann, who became the only Gator over the past 50 years to lead the team in points and rebounds in back-to-back wins with both games on the road.

    • With Florida’s win at Auburn on Feb. 23, Mike White moved into #3 on Florida’s all-time wins list, now trailing only Billy Donovan (467, 1996-2015) and Norm Sloan (232, 1960-66, ’80-89).

    • The Gators lead the SEC in free throw percentage (.752, 44th NCAA), field goal percentage (.468, 49th NCAA), and 3-point field goal percentage (.358, 79th NCAA). Florida was the last team to lead the SEC in all three shooting percentage categories at the end of the season (2005-06).

    • Florida is blocking 5.33 shots per game, which is on pace for the best per-game average in program history. Colin Castleton leads the way and ranks second in the SEC with 2.2 per game.• UF earned the SEC’s best win of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge, knocking off 11th-ranked West Virginia, 85-80, in Morgantown behind 21 points and five blocked shots from Colin Castleton and Noah Locke’s 19 points and 4-for-7 shooting from 3-point range. Castleton earned SEC Player of the Week honors for his effort.

    • The Gators completed a sweep of Georgia for the second straight season and fourth time in six seasons under White. Tre Mann posted a career-high 24 points in the win at Athens.

    • Florida’s 75-49 rout of #6 Tennessee was UF’s fifth top-10 win under White, the third by 20+ points, and came despite the absence of Scottie Lewis and Castleton.• In Florida’s comeback win vs. Ole Miss, the Gators held Ole Miss without a field goal for the final 6:28 as part of a 20-2 finish. Castleton finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds, and eight blocked shots, the first SEC player to achieve a 20/10/8 stat line in conference action since Ole Miss’ Ansu Sesay vs. Mississippi St. in 1997.

    • Castleton had a breakout week at the start of SEC play and earned co-SEC Player of the Week honors, scoring 23 against Vanderbilt and 21 vs. LSU. Castleton’s offense was efficient in Nashville, going 11-for-13 from the field with five dunks. Against LSU, he scored the Gators’ first 15 points of the second half over a six-minute span and totaled 19 of his 21 points after the break.
