Smiles, joy, and excitement are contagious

As the Florida players headed to the locker room with their heads hung like we had seen Kentucky during their six-game losing skid, a Wildcat team that remained on the court may be an indicator of just what this team could become.

Calipari hugged Boston on the bench. He had preached after Vanderbilt to leave the freshman alone and hate him instead. He has clearly taken him under his wing and showering him with encouragement.

Boston then had a smile from Gainsville to Lexington as Sarr came over to congratulate him with a huge grin of his own.

Brooks was at mid-court getting towels slapped on his back by Lance Ware along with high-fives, and hugs.

This public display of affection could be the formula that team chemistry is starting to solidify and not bubble over like before.
