Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Gainesville, FL
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Benched because of his attitude in practice, Pat Young responded as well as Florida coach Billy Donovan could have imagined.Young had 10 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocks as the seventh-ranked Gators routed Marquette 82-49 on Thursday night in the SEC-Big East Challenge.Young played with energy and effort -- the kind of performance Donovan expects every night from his 6-foot-9 junior center."My job as a coach is to bring out the best in Patric Young as a player," Donovan said. "Right now, he wasn't doing that. It wasn't performance. It was effort, his attitude, his disruptiveness in practice that caused me to say you're not starting. Give Patric credit. He responded with a great effort."
