Best wins: The Gators defeated then-No. 6 Kansas State in December and also defeated Florida State, Xavier, Tennessee and Vanderbilt on the road.

Worst losses: The Gators went on the road to Orlando to face UCF and former UF assistant coach Donnie Jones on a neutral site and left town with a stunning 57-54 loss to a team that eventually finished 19-11 and is playing in the College Basketball Invitational tournament. Four games later, Florida suffered a 71-68 overtime loss to Jacksonville — at home. The Gator players now say that was the turning point in the season.
