Florida Basketball: Final 2013-14 Grades for Gators After Final Four Loss

The Florida Gators picked a terrible time for their worst game of the 2013-14 season, falling 63-53 to the Connecticut Huskies in their national semifinal meeting at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Florida's stalwart defense was the most porous it's been all year, allowing UConn to make 61 percent of its two-point shots. Offensively, the balanced Gator offense produced very little ball movement, recording a Final Four record-low three assists on 19 baskets.

This defeat will leave a sour taste in the mouth of Florida fans, but it's hard to ignore the dominant performance that UF put on for five months. The team climbed into The Associated Press Top 10 in January and never left as it amassed an epic 30-game winning streak.

So, now that the book is closed on UF's campaign, what kind of grades have the Gators earned? We'll break down Florida's performance in conference and nonconference action, consider the bench as a whole and the starters individually.
