Mike White's first season had some positives, room for improvement: Some of the bright spots this season included freshman KeVaughn Allen, whose 418 points trailed only Bradley Beal, Nick Calathes, and Kenny Boynton for most points scored by a Florida freshman in the past 20 years. John Egbunu and Kasey Hill's late season improvement could also be built upon next year. Of course the Gators will also have to replace Dorian Finney-Smith and need to work on their shooting issues.
