Florida’s social media team turns Gators basketball into ‘NBA Jam’ video game

Few would argue that Florida Gators redshirt sophomore forward John Egbunu already makes dunks like he’s playing in “NBA Jam,” so it made logical sense to show fans exactly what the rest of the team would look like if they were inside the popular video game.

Promoting a 90s night set to be held Tuesday during Florida’s game against Ole Miss at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center (9 p.m. ET, ESPNU), the Gators unveiled a few video clips in which they added “NBA Jam” graphics to real Florida highlights.

Three former Florida Gators win Super Bowl 50 rings with Denver Broncos

The 2015-16 NFL season concluded on Sunday with three players with ties to the Florida Gators on teams competing for the league championship in Super Bowl 50.

The Gators-filled Denver Broncos ultimately defeated the Florida player-deficient Carolina Panthers 24-10 to win the Super Bowl, bringing three more rings to Gainesville, Florida, from the fingers of wide receiver Andre Caldwell, offensive lineman Max Garcia and linebacker Lerentee McCray.

Fastbreak: Florida Gators continue to show bi-polar nature in 80-61 drubbing by Kentucky

Just one week after pulling out a signature win and appearing as if they had finally turned the corner, the Florida Gators (15-8, 6-4 SEC) proved they are still the inconsistent, two-faced team that had played the first 22 games of the 2015-16 season. On the road against the No. 20 Kentucky Wildcats (17-6, 7-4 SEC) at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, Florida played one of its worst games of the season while allowing Kentucky to put together one of its best.

In doing so, the Gators fell to 1-5 against AP Top 25 teams this season and threw out an opportunity to find a spot in the bottom of the poll. Though UF’s chances to earn an NCAA Tournament bid did not take a major hit, the team’s ego most likely did as it pumped up that of UK and once again fell both on the road and against one of the best opponents its faced this season.

OnlyGators.com breaks down Saturday’s tough loss with nsix quick-hitters.

It was over when: The second half began. Though the Gators cut the Wildcats’ massive first-half lead down in the first 20 minutes (see below), Florida was simply unable to hold on and allowed Kentucky to go up 18 at the break. UF did not have much success stopping UK at the start of the second half either as the Wildcats scored eight straight points right out of the gate to take a game-high 26 point lead and make a comeback nearly impossible. The Gators did chip away at the large lead, cutting it to 14 as the hosts went 0-for-8 from the floor, but the Wildcats had no problem holding on.

Florida Gators men’s, women’s basketball both surprising, surging at just the right time

Don’t look now, but Florida Gators men’s basketball might be on the cusp of turning things around after a very difficult final year under Billy Donovan. Oh, and the Florida women’s basketball team? It’s in the process of what could potentially be the best season in program history.

Before the 2015-16 season began, new Gators coach Mike White was careful not to predict much success for his team, especially considering he’d only spent so much time with his players during offseason practices.
