1 » Approximately 90 minutes before game time the Florida Gators announced that sophomore forward Will Yeguete, out since breaking his foot on Feb. 21, “will be in uniform and warm up” with the team prior to their Elite Eight contest. No. 7-seed Florida (26-10) will take on the No. 4-seed Louisville Cardinals (29-9) in the West Region finals for an opportunity to head to New Orleans, LA and participate in the Final Four portion of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. The Gators also noted that, should the team advance and play next weekend, Yeguete will be available to play on a limited basis. He started participating in drills with the team on Friday.
2 » Now officially a member of the New York Jets, quarterback Tim Tebow’s presence is already being felt in the Big Apple. On Saturday at noon, Jockey (a brand for which Tebow is a paid endorser) put a billboard up outside Lincoln Tunnel in New York City. The brand has previously posted billboards of Tebow in Denver, CO. The Jets will hold a press conference on Monday at noon to announce Tebow, but fans apparently already have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of him in the city.
