The Florida Gators had a terrific season in 2010-11, winning the SEC regular season title and finishing their NCAA Tournament run by losing to the eventual runners-up, Butler in the Elite Eight. The Gators were a very well-balanced team, using the sharp shooting of Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker combined with the post play of Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin to complement the do-it-all contributions of SEC Player of the Year Chandler Parsons.
But now, Tyus, Macklin and Parsons are gone, leaving the frontcourt a huge question mark for this year's Gators.
However, the Gators will get a huge boost with the additions of G Mike Rosario, who sat out last year because of transfer rules, and from super freshman G Brad Beal.
All in all, it looks to be a very exciting year ahead for the No. 8/10 Gators. Here are five keys to a successful season for the Gators.
