Kasey Hill has arrived, folks. The freshman Florida Gators point guard stepped on UF’s campus as a raw talent, showing periodic flashes of brilliance. It took nearly an entire season, but Billy Donovan has worked his magic, teaching the former No. 10-overall recruit how to control his incredible game.
Hill’s progress was on display during Florida’s Sweet 16 game against UCLA. He dished an incredible 10 assists coming off the bench, and joined basketball royalty along the way.

If that wasn’t impressive enough for you, Hill’s 10 dishes were just two less than UCLA had for the entire game.
With senior guard Scottie Wilbekin having exhausted his eligibility after this year, Billy Donovan’s latest project is blossoming at just the right time.
