From a pure who-did-they-lose standpoint, Florida has to replace its top three scorers from a season ago.
Kenny Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario are no longer on campus, but Billy Donovan brought in a solid recruiting class featuring Kasey Hill and Chris Walker to go along with returning big man Patric Young. Yes, the Gators lost plenty of talent, but considering what they were bringing in, they probably don’t make this list were it not for off-court issues.
Scottie Wilbekin, Damontre Harris and Dorian Finney-Smith were suspended indefinitely late in the offseason, and Michael Frazier will miss some games as he recovers from mononucleosis. That leaves Florida notably shorthanded for the early going, even if the suspensions don’t last very long.
You never want to have an offseason marred by off-court concerns, but that is exactly what Florida is dealing with now.
