Kevin Keatts, Steve Forbes and Joe Dooley are all hot mid-major names for the coaching carousel. All three came to Orlando looking to get a win and boost their profile. But there will be no Andy Enfield-esque run from any of the three. Would guess at least one of them makes a move this spring, though.

Florida looked great in the second half and pulls away from East Tennessee State for a 80-65 win. ETSU made it a game late in the first half and early in the second, but Florida just had too much size and speed. Gators took advantage of ETSU turnovers, and there was no answer for Devin Robinson.
