My Team | Florida Gators
19 year-old Telecommunications major at the University of Florida. I am proud to say I have never lived anywhere other than Gainesville Florida. I am not sure Saturdays in the fall exist unless accompanied with tailgating, and if I still have a voice when exiting the swamp on any given Saturday I have not done my job. I am morally opposed to anything Garnet and Gold, Red and Black or "Creamsicle" orange.
On Easter Sunday, there was no resurrection for a Florida basketball team whose hopes of victory were killed very early on in the afternoon.
Last night, the magical run of the plucky No. 15 seed Florida Gulf Coast Eagles came to an end as Florida defeated the tournament darlings 62-50.
Six games, that’s all that separates the 2013 Florida Gators from the immortality gained in 2006 and 2007 when they began NCAA Tournament play on Friday night.
The Florida Gators (26-6) advanced to the final of the SEC basketball tournament today by beating the Alabama Crimson Tide (21-12), 61-51.
The Florida Gators (24-6) fell at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats (21-10) on Saturday in a familiar fashion, 61-57.
The Florida Gators (24-5) celebrated senior night in style defeating the Vanderbilt Commodores (13-16) and capping of an SEC regular season championship.
The Florida Gators were upended on the road by a hot Tennessee Volunteers basketball squad.
The Florida Gators (21-4) met their demise again on the road, this time against the Missouri Tigers (19-7).
The Florida Gators (21-3) are at it again as they decimated the Auburn Tigers (9-16) on Saturday, 83-52. It was a typical conference victory for Florida, they never trailed, led by double digits midway through the first half and then spent most of the second half with a lead in the 20′s and 30′s.
The Florida Gators (20-3) entertained the rival Kentucky Wildcats (17-7) Tuesday night in the O’Connell center.
The Florida Gators (19-3) had some frustration to unload after having their 10 game winning streak snapped at the hands of the Arkansas Razorbacks Wednesday night. The Mississippi State Bulldogs (7-15) bore the brunt of that frustration in the 83-58 Florida win.
The momentum had built around the Florida Gators (18-3) as they ventured out-of-town to visit the Arkansas Razorbacks (14-8). That momentum was then stopped in its tracks Tuesday night thanks to an 80-69 loss for Florida that was a lot worse than the score indicates.
At some points it didn’t seem fair, as though the South Carolina Gamecocks (12-8) had been replaced by a junior varsity alternative. The Florida Gators (17-2), on the other hand, acted like the big boys they are and suffocated their visitors in the third largest SEC win in school history with a score of 75-36.
As far as huge dunks go, Patric Young is a repeat offender, here is the latest and greatest rim rocker from No. 4.
The Florida Gators (16-2) made it look easy again against a conference opponent trouncing the Mississippi State Bulldogs (7-11), 82-47.
The Florida Gators (15-2) entered into the unfriendly confines of Stegeman Coliseum Wednesday night to face the Georgia Bulldogs (7-11). They left with a result similar to the last time Florida played their neighbors to the north, running the Bulldogs out of their own gym 64-47.
Billy Donovan won his 400th game in style as his Florida Gator squad decimated the Missouri Tigers, 83-52.
The Florida Gators (12-2) took a visit to Baton Rouge on Saturday and came out clean on the other end, waxing the LSU Tigers (9-4) in their own building, 74-52.
During Florida basketball games I keep a running diary of the events that happen of note during the game. Here are my unfiltered notes from Florida’s victory over the Air Force Falcons.
The Florida Gators (9-2) have escaped their pre-existing condition of a bad case of “the Saturdays”, pulling away from the Air Force Falcons (8-3) in the second half for 78-61 victory.
