Big Games: L @ Ohio State, L @ Syracuse
While Florida has met preseason expectations for the most part, their schedule has not.
Including Ohio State and Syracuse, Florida's schedule had five ranked teams. Three of Florida's wins they thought would help (Arizona, Texas A&M and Florida State) have all failed to reach expectations.
The loss at Rutgers hurts, but upsets happen in basketball a lot, so Florida should be fine would one not-so-great loss.
Beal and Young are nice, but Kenny Boynton (19.5 ppg) is the stud on this team. He is a real scorer from anywhere on the floor and his leadership helps keep the young bucks in line.
Biggest Game Left: February 28th @ Vanderbilt
If KY can do what they did two seasons ago and control the SEC, the road contest at Vanderbilt could be huge to help seeding for UF in both the NCAA and SEC Tournament.
This team's backcourt is one of the tops in the country, but can it carry this team all season?
If they can continue to do what they have accomplished this season, they will win most of the games they should and struggle versus the best of the best. A Top Four seed is easily attainable for this team, and a deep run again should be expected from this team.
