Donovan Looks For Leaders
With Marreese Speights gone and Billy Donovan's incoming freshmen set to arrive next week, who wil lead the young gator basketball team this season?
Donovan hesitates to single any one player out, but has hinted that Nick Calathes is best suited to the role. Last season, Calathes lead the Gators in points, assists and steals.
"When you look at the playing time situation from last year, you think Nick should be a leader," says Donovan. "But I think Nick will have to do things from that position that he hasn't had to do yet."
Donovan says he will look to Calathes' sophomore teammates to ease the burden.
"He's gonna need some help. Jai Lucas played a lot of minutes for us, he started every game, he needs to help out in that role."
