Will Yeguete happy to be back following knee surgery



When Florida coach Billy Donovan announced at the beginning of February that junior F Will Yeguete would have to undergo knee surgery, Donovan said he anticpated the earliest Yeguete would return would be the postseason.

There was, at the time, an outside chance that Yeguete would be back for the final regular season game next weekend.

Today, Yeguete returned to practice sooner than he, and the medical staff, had anticipated. Exactly how much his return will mean to the Gators remains to be seen, particularly since he hasn't practiced or played in nearly one month.

But for Yeguete, just being back on the court is a huge deal after all he's been through.

Watch as Yeguete talks about how he feels, what he's expecting upon his return, and why he doesn't like his new knee brace.
