Florida's Allen, Vargas up in air
OCALA, Fla. -- The Florida Gators could be without two big men next season.
Coach Billy Donovan said Wednesday that small forward Adam Allen had a second surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left leg and won't be cleared to practice until at least mid-September. He says forward/center Eloy Vargas could be academically ineligible.
Although neither did much last season, the Gators had been counting on Allen and Vargas to play bigger roles this year.
