The Florida Lady Gators look to be in the cellar this year in the SEC East, and they could be left in the cellar of the entire SEC. I have them this high because if they do have a bad season, it will at least be against exceptional opponents; after all, they play in the same division as Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia. If they could just steal a couple of wins against these opponents, then that would be a success for this season.
Head Coach Amanda Butler has done a great job with the Lady Gators in her few seasons that she has been with the program, but she will have her work cut out for her this season if she wants to even get the Lady Gators to .500 for the season. Her recruiting has gone well, and Florida should have great young players, but they look to be throne to the sharks this season against the loaded SEC East.
Steffi Sorenson, Jordan Jones, and Sharielle Smith were Florida's leading scorers last season; all of them are gone. Now, Florida must rely on junior Azania Stewart to provide the leadership that this team is sorely lacking. This will be a rebuilding season, and Stewart looks to be the best player on an extremely weak team right now.
Experience will play a key role in Florida's success, and that is where Florida will run into the most trouble. Their defense last year was not great, and they do not look to have much in the way of solid defenders at this point either. This could make for a long season if they can not keep games close.
The lack of experience on this team is what will be the real problem for the Lady Gators. I would not, however, count them out of creating some drama toward the end of the season, after their younger players have gained some much needed experience. If they can come together, they may yet steal a win from a much better team.
