There isn't a scrub on the bench (forwards Chris Richard, Adrian Moss and guard Walter Hodge), either. Throughout the past two days in New York, the Donovan family mentioned how at ease Billy is coaching this squad. He doesn't have to deal with any peripheral garbage of players worrying about the league. The major issue is playing time. And it's obvious with each passing day that Florida's lack of hype in the preseason was probably the best thing for this squad. Now that they're on display for the nation to see, the surprise is gone. Florida is here to stay in the SEC and, likely, in the top 25. Sometimes players, and teams, find themselves at times they least expect. For Florida, it happened in New York, which couldn't have worked out any better for the Green family that so desperately wanted this week in New York to be memorable.
