New uniform numbers for freshmen set


Florida announced uniform numbers for its three incoming freshmen on Friday.

Shooting guard KeVaughn Allen will wear number 4, while forward Kevarrius Hayes will wear 13 and forward Keith Stone will wear 23.

In addition, junior swingman DeVon Walker is changing his uniform number from 25 to 1, a number made available when former Gator guard Eli Carter transferred to Boston College.

Incoming junior college transfer forward Justin Leon’s uniform number hasn’t been decided yet.

Other notes:

— Florida junior forward Alex Murphy finished up a strong showing at the World University Games in South Korea. Murphy averaged 19.2 ppg and 6.6 rpg in five games for Finland, which went 2-3 at the event.

—  Former Gator guard Scottie Wilbekin continued his strong play in the Orlando Magic summer league, helping lead the Magic white team to the championship game with an 11 point, 3 assist game against the Brooklyn Nets. “I wanted to come out and be more aggressive,” Wilbekin told Fox Sports Florida following the game. “My coaches want me to look for my shot while trying to create for others and still being a point guard. Last year I didn’t take too many shots so I wanted to be more aggressive this year.” Wilbekin will move on and play for the Philadelphia 76ers summer league team next week in Las Vegas.
