11. Florida

Florida was within a few possessions of consecutive trips to the Final Four for the second time in a six-year period. Instead, the Gators produced back-to-back Elite Eight teams. The core of the second one returns with Kenny Boynton leading a loaded backcourt and Patric Young and Erik Murphy up front. One-time role players such as Mike Rosario, Casey Prather, Will Yeguete and Scottie Wilbekin are now expected to shine. Florida should be one of the more experienced teams in the Top 25 and its confidence is high. The Gators will need it because the schedule is stacked -- as it always is in Gainesville. They'll again be played up as an undercard to Kentucky, but the desire to finish the job with a Final Four appearance is real. And this team has a chance to get it done. -- Andy Katz
