Kicked Little Rock's arse tonight to improve to 9-3 and open up the O Dome in style.

I am optimistic that we can have a pretty good year as we are showing improvement in our FG% and FT%. I think we need to work on our ball movement the most as we still go through huge scoring droughts when our guards seem to be at a loss when pressured.

There's times where I don't really know what our offensive identity is or if there's any real plays that we run. It seems like a pick up game at times. But free throws have improved drastically and we play really good defense.

This team needs to just keep on improving. Our three losses are to elite teams.

Just watched the Aekie game at Bud Walton and even though Arkie only had 1 loss on the season...they havent played nearly the schedule the Gators have and it showed. A 9 point win and it could have been worse but we goofed around the last couple of minutes with the game really out of reach. We had 4 players with double figures scoring and looked impressive especially on defense.

We play Ole Miss at home and they got beat pretty bad by UK and we do have an away game at USC in a few weeks....but we at least have some games in renovated ODome coming up.

Lots of positives from last nights game. Team is athletic, much better shooting than last year. They play good defense, crash the boards. I think Mike White may be another Billy D,
We can only hope! Go Gators.

Avoid bad losses and UF is a lock at this point for the NCAA.

We look much better and Kasey Hill has learned how to use his talent much better. I love our help defense and the way we crash the boards. Also shooting much better even though we didn't have a good night at the stripe.

Devin Robinson was unbeatable on the boards, but I dont think Arkie is a very good rebounding team overall..even if they do have a good shot blocker, its one thing to block shots and another to fight for rebounds. We have Robinson, Hayes, Egbunu & Leon that fight for the ball. The pigs just couldnt keep up and the refs tried to help by fouling out both....but too late to help em.

Its the one thing that is a head scratcher...road teams always get more calls against them? Usually.

I was at the game last night. I really like the make over. Team played well enough to win. Seemed as tho we jacked up 3's a lot. May just be my perception.

Loved the new O'dome as well. A lot of the 3 were open looks based off the 1 3 1 that Ole Miss played. They seemed to play zone the whole game.

First half ball movement and defense was outstanding. Second half loss of intensity.

Yep, we can definitely work on our focus, which we seem to lose when we feel we have a comfortable lead. Big game vs the Vols on Saturday. They have given lots of good teams trouble so hopefully we can hold serve.

TenRC was no match for the Gators yesterday. Their two big guys fouled out but it was already over. After a bad start we got rolling and thanks to uncalled fouls (on top of the ones that were called) committed on our big guys...was one of the reason we struggled early imo.

We have a road trip to South Carolina looming that will be tough...but other than UK we should win a lot of games.

I think Bama will be a tough game for us in Tuscaloosa. Avery has them playing some pretty good defense.
