How far will Gators advance?: I've pondered this question quite a bit over the course of the season, and I'm still thinking Sweet Sixteen. Andy and I sort of touched on this issue back in the end of February and I stand by what I said. I also think they have a far better chance of choking (as happens far too much under Billy Donovan) than say, going on a run and destroying everyone in their path (which has happened what, two and a half times?).

Kenny Boynton looks to finish career strong: Boynton is out of his shooting slump and ready to lead the Gators to a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. (Jason Lieser, Palm Beach Post)

Middle of defense a concern?: The Gators are replacing all five guys in the middle of their defense, but in my opinion, they've got enough flexibility and talent to keep it from becoming an issue. (Michael DiRocco, GatorNation/ESPN)

Loucheiz Purifoy likes role: I like that he likes it. He seems like a poor-man's Elijah Williams for the Gators this year. And there is nothing wrong with that. (Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel)

Gators' six biggest SEC rivals: As for me? I would switch the top two, take Alabama off and slide the rest up one spot. Maybe to complete the actual list of six, I would throw Vanderbilt in the last spot. They are more of a rival in football than Alabama. (GC Staff, Gator Country)
