A team can’t reach six regional finals in nine seasons, including four in a row, without being either the dream crusher or dream maker.

Florida ended November ranked fifth in the nation. Two months later, the Gators were out of the top 25. An injury-riddled inside game, defensive breakdowns and an over-reliance on 3-point shooting produced some bad losses. The Gators made the NCAA Tournament, but inconsistency was the season’s theme.
