Speights to enter NBA Draft

UF center Marreese Speights will enter the NBA Draft, coach Billy Donovan said in a statement Tuesday. Speights, a sophomore, will not hire an agent which means he can come back to school if he does not believe he'll be picked high enough or is not comfortable with his situation. Speights was second on the team in scoring and first in rebounding. With several big-man recruits coming in, the Gators would've had decent depth at their bigs, but without Speights that has become much more difficult now.

Early on the Gators have being outmuscled and it's not looking too good. Some big 3s by Walter Hodge and Nick Calathes have kept the Gators in it and closed the gap, but this is going to be a tough one for UF to pull out.

Noah struggles with disciplinary problems

Former UF forward Joakim Noah's crazy persona isn't sitting well with his new teammates. Noah was reportedly only going to be benched one game after the Chicago Bulls first-rounder got in a heated argument with assistant Ron Adams. However, after Noah sat in Friday's 100-97 win at Philadelphia, Noah's teammates unanimously voted that the former Gator should sit in Sunday's game against Atlanta as well. Bulls coach Jim Boylan gave his players their wish, and Noah didn't play.
