The Florida Gators men's basketball team is ranked No. 9 in the AP's Preseason Poll. For a team that bounced out of the first round of the tournament that's pretty good. I guess we can attribute it to bringing back all five starters: Walker, Parsons, Tyus, Macklin and Boynton. The Gators are a year older and are poised to make a move deep into the tournament this year.
The Gators also have a strong shot at winning the SEC. Kentucky lost their entire team to the NBA Draft. The Wildcats do have some great recruits but they lack experience. The Gators have a lot of size and solid shooting on the outside... not many teams in the SEC will be able to match up with them.
What do you think of the Gators ranking in the preseason poll? About right? Should we be higher or lower? Post a comment and let us know.
