Gators' Brewer Back To Old Self
Even after three smile-inducing hours, University of Florida forward Corey Brewer frowned late Wednesday night.

Gators squeak by Vandy
Corey Brewer scored a career-high 26 points and No. 10 Florida beat Vanderbilt 73-68 Wednesday night, coach Billy Donovan's 250th career victory.

Brewer leads Florida past Vanderbilt
Corey Brewer's right ankle was healthy, and that was good enough for the Florida Gators. Brewer scored 26 points, including a layup in the game's final minute, and Florida opened a six-game stretch to end the regular season with a 73-68 victory against Vanderbilt on Wednesday night.

Donovan gets 250th victory
Apparently, you can go home again. You can seemingly find your shooting touch there as well. Florida sophomore guard Corey Brewer, a native of nearby Portland, Tenn., scored a game-high 26 points to pace the No. 10 Gators to a 73-68 victory over Vanderbilt on Wednesday night, the 250th career win for UF coach Billy Donovan.

Brewer puts on show for family
Corey Brewer used to play pickup basketball games at Vanderbilt's Memorial Gym while growing up in nearby Portland, Tenn. On Wednesday, the Florida sophomore forward had a happy homecoming, firing in a career-high 28 points before a horde of friends and family to lead the Gators to a 73-68 victory over Vandy.

Tookes will face coaches today over gun incident
University of Florida junior wide receiver Kenneth Tookes will meet today with Gators coaches, and he is expected to explain why he fired a gunshot into an occupied apartment last weekend, the player's father said Wednesday.

Florida Gator Baseball

Bears stun No. 1 Gators
Craig Gibson said his team thought it could win, but wasn't sure if it knew it would win. No matter. It won anyway. Mercer got an elite night from its pitching staff and held on to stun top-ranked Florida 3-2 Wednesday night before more than 3,700 fans at McKethan Stadium in non-conference college baseball.

Canes win a tune-up for UF
Miami warmed up for its weekend showdown with top-ranked Florida by routing Louisville 13-4. The Canes are 'psyched' about playing the Gators.

Top-ranked Gators fall to Mercer
Wednesday night raised a number of questions for the No. 1 UF baseball team (3-1), but Darren O'Day is sure of one thing: The Gators are not the top team in the nation.

Florida Gator Scot Brantley

Search on for Brantley's replacement
Scot Brantley is still dealing with the sting of no longer being a part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' radio team.
