    NUMBERS OF NOTE
    8
    Micah Handlogten’s eight offensive rebounds vs. Virginia marked just
    the seventh time this century a Gator has had 8+ offensive boards.
    Handlogten joins Al Horford (twice), Colin Castleton, Dorian
    Finney-Smith, Udonis Haslem and Will Yeguete in that category.
    +17
    Florida’s rebounding provided a bright spot against Virginia, as the
    Gators outrebounded UVA, 47-30. It marked the largest rebounding
    margin by UF under Todd Gold.
    2
    Only two Gators who scored in last year’s game vs. Florida A&M will
    play in this year’s: Riley Kugel and Denzel Aberdeen

    THE TIP-OFF
    • Florida returns home for the first of two in-state opponents this week, starting with Tuesday’s meeting vs.Florida A&M. This marks the second straight season the Rattlers come to Gainesville, with UF picking up a 102-62 victory in last season’s contest.

    • UF looks bounce back from its first loss of the season, a closely-contested neutral-site showdown vs. Virginia. Will Richard knocked down four 3-pointers and posted a team-leading 16 points as all five starters scored in double figures.

    • Micah Handlogten (14 points, 14 rebounds) and Tyrese Samuel (10 points, 11 rebounds) both posted their first double-double as Gators vs. UVA and became the first UF duo in more than three years to record double-doubles in the same game (Kerry Blackshear Jr. and Omar Payne vs. Auburn, 1/18/20). The pair helped UF to a +17 rebounding margin in the game, larger than UF had in any contest last season.

    • The Gators started their season hot, going on a 16-0 run over the first six minutes of the season-opening win vs. Loyola Maryland. Riley Kugel’s 23 points and six steals led the way, while Micah Handlogten (16), Tyrese Samuel (15) and Alex Condon (13) all contributed double-figure scoring and Walter Clayton Jr. added nine points, eight rebounds and five assists.

    • 2023-24 OUTLOOK
    • Florida moves into its second season under head coach Todd Golden, who led the Gators to a pair of top-25 wins and a postseason berth in his first season leading the program.

    • The Gators had a busy spring in the transfer portal, bringing in one of the top transfer classes in the nation, along with its freshman class.

    • Florida returns four scholarship players, including a pair of starters in Will Richard and Riley Kugel.

    • Richard posted 18 double-figure scoring games, including a season-high 24 at Georgia, while Kugel shone late in the season and earned SEC All-Freshman honors after averaging 17.3 points over the last 10 games of the season.
    • Point guard Denzel Aberdeen and forward Aleks Szymczyk also return as sophomores looking to make a jump.

    • UF’s transfer class includes guards Walter Clayton Jr., Zyon Pullin and Julian Rishwain along with the frontcourt duo of Micah Handlogten and Tyrese Samuel.

    • The Gators welcome several freshmen to the program with 6-foot-9 forward Thomas Haugh from Pennsylva-nia, 6-foot-11 Australian Alex Condon and Lithuanian point guard Kajus Kublickas joining the squad.

    • Walk-ons Alex Klatsky and Jack May both return, while the Gators also added freshman Cooper Josefsberg and former team manager Bennett Andersen to the roster in the walk-on role.

    • Golden’s coaching staff enters their second year with the program, including associate head coaches Carlin Hartman and Korey McCray and assistant coach Kevin Hovde. With the NCAA’s expansion of basketball coaching staff s, the Gators also added assistant coaches John Andrzejek and Taurean Green to their on-court staff.

    Not gonna be a very challenging game. Hope we get the bench a little confidence, especially the freshmen. With one more game until Pullin returns, Aberdeen has to pick it up.
