How many wins do the Gators need for an NCAA Tourney bid?

GAINESVILLE -- Florida's blowout loss to Arkansas on Saturday should come as no surprise. Florida is still a young team. Perhaps the Gators (18-4, 5-2 in the SEC) started to believe they had actually done something this season? Wins against Kentucky and Vanderbilt don't seem as impressive now that the 'Dores have a losing records in the SEC and Kentucky is 10-9 overall.

How many wins does this young Florida team need to get an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament? I'm keeping the magic number at four, although many think three will do the trick. If the SEC wasn't so awful, then eight conference wins might be enough. Not this season.

Four more wins sounds about right considering the Gators weak nonconference schedule. Can't get a handle on the SEC. Is it really that bad?

I think 4 more win should do the trick, and as a fan i don't see the NCAA tournament bid as a chance to win it all, but to get some much needed experience in a big stage for this team (Don't get me wrong i still have that little hope that we can win it again).

5 wins is the magic number. Either 4 reg. season wins and 1 SEC tournament win or just 5 reg. season wins. Be surprised if win number nineteen came tonight against Vols. Vols beat Florida in Knoxville last year and are ranked in top 10.
