GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Billy Donovan was furious with his starters during Saturday's practice. He didn't like their effort, intensity or commitment to defense and rebounding, so he stopped the workout and told the team to come back at 8 p.m. to try again.

Frankly, that practice wasn't that great either, as Donovan and his assistants pointed out more than once. The coaches couldn't believe after Friday's experience on the battleship -- being around all those determined soldiers and that remarkably inspiring environment -- how they could be so flat, especially after playing only half a game. And they couldn't understand how UF's four-man freshmen class, despite their mistakes, out-hustled the older guys.

Then came Sunday's shoot-around six hours before the season opener against Alabama State.
