The short-handed Gators rode their depth, scoring and talent to pull away from hot-shooting Florida Southern 110-88 Friday night in UF’s exhibition opener.

Freshman point guard Kasey Hill showed a gear and ability to get the basket not seen in the Gators backcourt in some time; senior forward Casey Prather built on last season’s strong postseason play; and senior center Patric Young looked more explosive and energized after dropping 8-10 pounds during the offseason.

Stepping in for suspended senior Scotti Wilbekin, Hill, a McDonald’s All-American from Clermont’s Montverde Acadamy, pushed the pace whenever he had the ball. Hill’s fast-paced, aggressive style led to a half-dozen baskets off strong drives to the hoop, but also raised the overall tempo of players around him.
