This is a serious question, one I want an answer to, because I don't really know: Which Florida basketball player is most important, in your mind, in the Gators' road showdown with Ohio State tonight?
Is it Patric Young, tasked with handling the Buckeyes' beast in the middle, Jared Sullinger? Is it Erving Walker, who could pester Aaron Craft? Is it Kenny Boynton, who will have to play tough perimeter defense against a variety of players? Maybe Brad Beal, who might be counted on for 15-20 points against a defense that may be the best he's ever seen?Is it Mike Rosario, who will need to be a force off the bench and possibly handle the ball? Is it Erik Murphy, who could be some sort of unsung hero if he can hit a couple of big threes? Someone else?
I really and honestly don't know, and though I'm going to answer Beal in this poll and probably write more about it this afternoon, I suspect I'm not in the majority on this one.
Who will be the Gators' most important player tonight?
