Billy Donovan believes more frontcourt depth could be a benefit next season



With the return of C Patric Young and the addition of transfers Damontre Harris and Dorian Finney-Smith, the Gators 2013-14 basketball team will have much more depth in the frontcourt.

And coach Billy Donovan believes that will be a benefit for the Gators not only in actual competition, but in providing much better practices for the big men.

As for the season that just ended, Donovan said he's spent the past week trying to determine why the Gators didn't play better in the loss to Michigan in the NCAA Elite Eight game. Eeven at their best, he said he's unsure the Gators had what it takes to defeat Michigan, which went on to become the national runner-up.

Listen to Donovan discuss the new frontcourt possibilities, and talk about the end of the season.
