There was the injury to the team's only other natural ball handler, freshman point guard Kasey Hill.
All of this and the Gators are still 15-2. And the two losses? There was the last-second miracle game winner by Shabazz Napier at UConn, the one in which Wilbekin wasn’t on the floor for the final few minutes and Finney-Smith was forced to run the team with Hill also on the mend. The loss at Wisconsin was legitimate. Most teams fall in Madison, but Donovan’s team had a valid excuse: no Wilbekin and no Finney-Smith.
No team has been as incomplete as Florida. No national title contender has managed to slide under the radar
