Florida Basketball: What's Next for Gators After 2014 Final Four Loss?
April 6, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
A group of tough-as-nails seniors saw their Florida Gators careers end in disappointment on Saturday night, as the UConn Huskies upset the No. 1 overall seed in the 2014 Final Four, 63-53.
Scottie Wilbekin and his classmates made three straight Elite Eights, capped by this Final Four run, but now the Gators program must face a future without its hard-working leaders.
None had a rougher end to his career than Wilbekin, who was stifled by UConn’s Ryan Boatright as the Gators offense melted down in the national semifinals. The SEC Player of the Year staggered to a 2-of-9 shooting night, recording just four points and one assist in his final game in a Florida jersey.
