Florida women's basketball preview

Florida women

Coach: Amanda Butler (19-14, second season at UF; 59-36 overall)

Last season: 19-14 (6-8 SEC, tied for seventh). Lost at N.C. State in third round of WNIT.

Notable: The Gators return four seniors and three juniors and four players who were a vital part of last year's starting rotation. Preseason All-SEC players Sha Brooks and Marshae Dotson (first-team All-SEC last season) lead the way. … Florida is coming off a season in which it tied a school record for the greatest one-year turnaround, but Butler doesn't want Florida resting on its laurels. "This year's mantra and theme will be 'Bigger and Better,' " Butler said. "That's where our expectations are rooted."
