Gamethread: No. 12 Florida a tough test for Wildcats in Gainesville

New, 19 comments

The Florida Gators are dangerous. Arizona's 6-2 record is nothing like UF's 5-2 record, because aside from two losses, they've been blowing out opponents by 32 points per game. The two losses? Against No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Syracuse, which they lost by seven and four points respectively.

Without Josiah Turner at point, the Wildcats are starting off with a disadvantage already.

Florida, like Arizona last year, runs 10 players deep and their guards are the main reason for that.

The No. 2 offense in the country could run down Arizona. If anything, it's the first true test to see how Sean Miller's club will respond to an adverse environment against a very tough opponent. Here's to thinking the Wildcats might indeed find out they've got a long ways to go, but just remember that last season Arizona got destroyed by a very good BYU team early on before its Elite Eight run.

The next two weeks will be very telling. And it starts tonight on ESPN.
