I asked ESPN college basketball analyst Seth Greenberg about Florida’s offensive struggles this season. The Gators come into Saturday’s matchup against Kentucky ranked 11th in the Southeastern Conference in scoring offense at 66 points per game. “They players aren’t as good,” Greenberg said. “You have new guys in new roles and players that are works in progress. You are replacing a four-year starting point guard (Scottie Wilbekin) with a guy (Kasey Hill) that doesn’t have a great feel for the game as a point. (Forward Jacob) Kurtz is one of their better players. He was the manager. That’s the reality of the thing.”
