College Basketball Handicapping: Florida desperate for defense as it plays host to Kentucky

03.01.2016     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Florida looked to be in good position to get to the Big Dance but three straight losses have the Gators in danger of not finishing with a winning record in SEC play. UF's defense has been non-existent as it allowed 87 to Vanderbilt and 96 last time out against LSU. First-year head coach Mike White claims that the team has done nothing but play defense in practice leading up to tonight's game against Kentucky.

“We got a little better offensively. But it took away from us being a good defensive team. We haven’t guarded the same way here of late.”

“Yesterday, 100 percent of the practice was defense,” White said. “And today, we’ll spend a lot more time on defense as well. I guess it’s always a balancing act, and we’ve got to get back to defending at a high level to give ourselves a chance.”
