Florida junior forward Dan Werner said he wasn’t overly concerned about the foul trouble he ran into Monday and Tuesday at the O’Reilly Auto Parts/CBE Classic in Kansas City.

Werner fouled out of both games. After scoring just eight points
in 22-foul plagued minutes Monday night against Syracuse, Werner was
more productive Tuesday night, scoring 13 points against Washington on
Tuesday night in 26 minutes.

“I’m not worried,” Werner said. “I just felt like I had some
cheap fouls called against me. They were two physical teams and there
was a lot of contact.”

Donovan was concerned enough though to put freshman Allan
Chaney in the starting lineup, in part to alleviate any foul trouble
that Werner could have had guarding Washington forward JonBrockman. With Chaney on Brockman instead to start the game, it gave Werner a chance to play a few minutes.
Also of note from the tournament, sophomore point guard Nick Calathes was named to the all-tournament team. Calathes averaged 20.0 points, 7.5 assists and 2.0 steals over the two games.
