Donovan named SEC Coach of the Year; Boynton, Gators rack up awards

For the second time in his career, Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan was named Tuesday the Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year.

Donovan led the No. 10 Gators (24-6) to an undefeated 15-0 mark at home this season with a 14-4 record in conference play. Florida cut down the nets Wednesday following its win against Vanderbilt that clinched the SEC regular season championship, the fourth under Donovan and fifth in UF history.

The All-SEC teams were also announced Wednesday with Gators senior forward Erik Murphy earning First-Team honors. Pompano Beach native and senior guard Kenny Boynton was named to the Second Team alongside senior guard Mike Rosario and junior center Patric Young.

Young also took home the SEC's Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award for the second straight year. Majoring in telecommunication, Young holds a 3.38 GPA and is averaging 10.5 points and 6.2 rebounds this season.

I guess this is the part where all the Gator fans start clammoring of how great they are....

Congrats to coach D and the players. Well deserved awards. Now they need to step it up going into the tourney.
Regarding the clueless cane fan, this is what the Gators fans expect year in and year out. This is what Donovan and UF do routinely. 20 plus win seasons and going deep into the dance. In contrast to your canes who are a one year wonder with a senior laden team that finally figured out how to win. The "fans" in Miami discovered this season that they had a basketball team, sold out a few games and the novelty is already getting old in the Gables. Let's see how far you make it into the tourney in this your one and only season. Next year you lose all the players and will be back to the way it was before, irrelevant.
