    NUMBERS OF NOTE
    3,882
    Florida’s four incoming Division-I
    transfers have scored a combined
    3,882 career points for their previous
    teams. That total ranks second-most
    of any transfer class this season, trail-
    ing only Arkansas’ six-man group.

    2nd
    Florida ranks second in the SEC over
    the past six seasons in conference
    wins, top-25 wins, NCAA Tournament
    wins and road SEC wins. The Gators’
    four true road wins over top-25 teams
    are tied for most by an SEC team.

    6
    Florida and Embry-Riddle last met in
    an exhibition game exactly 16 years
    prior to this season’s meeting. The
    Gators tipped off the 2005-06 season
    with an 86-48 victory on Nov. 1, 2005,
    led by Joakim Noah’s 21 points and 10
    rebounds.

    2020-21 AT A GLANCE
    • The Gators feature a slew of new faces after earning an NCAA Tournament berth and a tournament victory in
    2021 for the fourth straight tournament. The Gators are one of six teams nationally with a win in each of the past four tournaments and the only Southeastern Conference team to reach every NCAA Tournament in that span (since 2017).

    • After playing with no seniors on the roster last season, the Gators will have six senior or graduate players on their active roster to start the season in addition to Keyontae Johnson, who will be continuing in a supporting role for the time being. To date, Johnson has not been cleared to return to the floor for the Gators.

    • All-SEC frontcourt man Colin Castleton returns to UF after testing the NBA waters this summer, along with fellow 2020-21 starters Tyree Appleby and Anthony Duruji. Castleton was recognized with preseason All-SEC first-team status in the media vote this season.

    • Other returners include wing Niels Lane and post Jason Jitoboh, along with walk-on sophomores Alex Klatsky and Jack May.

    • The Gators added a quartet of veteran impact transfers who have a combined 3,882 career points scored at their previous schools. Florida’s 2021 class of incoming transfers rates in the nation’s top two in career points (Arkansas, 4,125 points, 6 players).

    • Guards Brandon McKissic (UMKC) and Phlandrous Fleming Jr. (Charleston Southern) both bring conference defensive player of the year and first-team all-conference credentials to Gainesville as graduate transfers.

    • The Gators also added a pair of undergrad transfers in senior guard Myreon Jones (Penn State) and junior forward CJ Felder (Boston College). Jones led the Nittany Lions in scoring last season with 15.3 points per game and averaged 2.4 3-pointers made per game, while Felder posted 9.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season.
    • UF also brings in two freshmen guards in ESPN Top 100 prospect Kowacie Reeves (Macon, Ga.) and pure-shooting lefty Elijah Kennedy (Virginia Beach, Va.), along with junior college transfer Tuongthach Gatkek.

    • The Gators are slated for at least nine games against preseason AP top 25 opponents this season, including nonconference battles vs. Florida State and Maryland with the possibility of a meeting against Ohio State in Fort Myers.

    • Associate head coach Al Pinkins returns for his fourth season at Florida, and assistant coaches Erik Pastrana and Akeem Miskdeen joined White’s staff after Jordan Mincy (Jacksonville) and Darris Nichols (Radford) moved on to head coaching opportunities.

    • Director of basketball operations Jonathan Blake (seventh season) and special assistant to the head coach Bryce Douglas (fifth season) return to White’s support staff. Athletic trainer Duke Werner, Florida’s Associate

    AD for Sports Health, returns for his 18th season with the men’s basketball team and 28th at Florida, while director of strength and conditioning Preston Greene enters his 11th season with the Gators

    I really not sure, but here is the answer

    A: No. SEC Network+ is complementary to SEC Network and part of your subscription with your cable, satellite, or streaming provider. Q: If a game is on ESPN+ or SEC Network+, can I watch it on TV? A: SEC Network+ and ESPN+ are not television channels, but they are available via the ESPN App on your TV through connected streaming services and devices. Q: Will the games on SEC Network+ and ESPN+ look any different? A: These games will have the same production value as games across all ESPN networks. For games airing simultaneously on SEC Network+ and ESPN+, both feeds will have the same on-air commentators and game coverage.

    Not showing on Sling SEC Plus. I have to go in to the ESPN app and then go to the SEC Plus network.

    I am a disaster with this stuff. . .

    So if I go to the ESPN app, and the ESPN+ . . . I can view it there, right?

    ESPN+ is extra cost even if you have ESPN. SEC+ is free if you have ESPN.

    Sometimes the SEC+ programming shows up just before it starts to stream. That's the way it is with Cox anyway. Check your Sling just before game time.
