University of Florida basketball coach Mike White is making a name for himself.
White, the second-year coach of the Florida Gators, is 24-6 (14-3 in the SEC), and has done a fine job replacing Billy Donovan. He won 21 games in his first season.
This season, White has become one of 10 Naismith Coach of the Year candidates.
White is preparing for his first trip to the NCAA Tournament. While at Louisiana Tech, White won three straight league titles but couldn’t get into the post-season tournament.
This year, White’s Gators team is supposed to be a No. 4 seed.
