We all know that Patric Young is one of the best players on the Gators, but aside from him and Murphy, who else is there at the forward position? Well, Will Yeguete and Casey Prather are really starting to emerge.
When Murphy is struggling, Florida will go with a more defensive-minded lineup. Murphy is a pretty good defender, but Yeguete and Prather are two of the best defenders on this team.
Prather just played in his first game of the season, so it may not be fair to say that he has emerged while Murphy has been slumping. However, if Murphy continues this trend, Prather and Yeguete will get more playing time.
In Prather's first game of the season, he played just 13 minutes but managed to score eight points, shooting 100 percent from the field. He also had one block and four rebounds. Now that Prather is healthy, he will become a force on the defensive side of the ball for the Gators.
Yeguete has been getting quite a bit of playing time this year, with 28.2 minutes per game, and he will continue to get this amount of playing time, or more, when Young is in foul trouble or when Murphy is not knocking down his shots.
Yeguete is leading the team in rebounds, with 7.8 rebounds per game. He is a great asset to the team and can really guard any position on the court.
