Mike Okauru, Dontay Bassett to make first career starts against Auburn

The Florida Gators will be going with a different starting lineup than we’ve seen in their showdown with #10 Auburn.

Florida has chosen to start freshmen Mike Okauru and Dontay Bassett for tonight’s game against the Tigers.

According to FloridaGators.com writer Chris Harry, KeVaughn Allen, Kevarrius Hayes, and Keith Stone all showed up late for a team meeting last night, forcing Gators coach Mike White to discipline the trio.

Obviously this questions the players’ mentality heading into an important run for Florida’s NCAA tournament chances.

There is no word on how long the players won’t be allowed to play.

Florida and Auburn tip off at approximately 8:30 from Exactech Arena. The game will be televised on SEC Network.
