How this Florida basketball team keeps winning these Southeastern Conference games might be more remarkable than convincing Al Horford, Corey Brewer and Joakim Noah to stay another season at UF.
Florida got so desperate on Wednesday night that coach Billy Donovan actually played a freshman walk-on. Yet Florida keeps on winning. The Gators rallied in the second half to beat South Carolina 73-71 in a road game that saw THE GREAT Shane Payne (great name, anyways) earn his first meaningful minutes (well, less than two minutes) of playing time this season. Payne is from Broward County, OF COURSE.
Florida (17-3, 4-1 in SEC) plays Vanderbilt on Sunday at the O'Connell Center. Until then, I'll leave my friends and loyal readers (What's going on in Peru?) with a poll. Well, more like a single multiple-choice question, which I would like answered in the most sarcastic refrains possible. Thank you.
Which answer best describes why Florida is the current leader in the SEC East?
A) Marreese Speights wears a rosary.
B) Walter Hodge's voo-doo hair-do.
C) Shane Payne.
D) The SEC is trash.
E) Jai Lucas' always-new Air Jordans.
