Gators prepare to begin basketball season with uncertainty



The Florida men's basketball team will begin practicing for the upcoming 2013 season on Friday without two key players and amidst much uncertainty.

Senior F Will Yeguete and transfer Eli Carter are out with injuries. Senior G Scottie Wilbekin has not been completely reinstated, coach Billy Donovan said, but he has satisfied enough of Donovan's requirements to begin practice on Friday.

With injuries and the need to replace three key starters from last season - Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Erik Murphy - the Gators are preparing for the season with many questions.

Donovan gives his thoughts on the Gators as the prepare to begin practice.
