SEC basketball continues to look like the SEC basketball we have known it to be these past few years, and the Florida Gators aren’t helping out. Donovan’s 8th-ranked Gators did their best Will Muschamp impression and almost lost to Louisiana Monroe at home last night.
The Gators barely ended up beating the Warhawks by a narrow margin of victory, 61-56. This Gator squad was fresh off a Monday-night loss to Miami, a game that the Gators did lose at home. Yes, last night the Gators were without starters Eli Carter and Dorian Finney-Smith, but the Gators on the court didn’t look that great, they struggled heavily to score the ball. They were led in scoring by Michael Frazier II with 21 points (4-11 from the field, 11-13 FT).
If Florida doesn’t get it together, and Arkansas doesn’t play up to at least the minimal hype they’ve been receiving, it may be the easiest SEC basketball season the Cats have ever played. The SEC is just bad. Again.
