ranks Gators 55th

299 put together an ambitious project, ranking all of the 351 men’s Division I college basketball programs.

The website ranked the Gators 55th overall going into the 2015-16 season. Of Florida, writes: “Mike White takes over what was a rough situation under Billy Donovan last season, but there’s talent here. Dorian Finney-Smith will be an All-SEC player, and Devin Robinson has that potential too. If they get more consistent guard play from Kasey Hill, they could be a tournament team.”

The full story can be found here. Interesting, Florida opens the season against a team ranked 311 (Navy) and opens at home vs. a team ranked 305th (North Carolina A&T). But UF’s non-conference schedule will pick up in December with games against Miami (21), Michigan State (11), Oklahoma State (76) and FSU (48).
