ORLANDO -- Point guard Kasey Hill participated in Thursday morning’s shoot-around and could be available to play when No. 1-ranked and top-seeded Florida (32-2) takes on 16th-seeded Albany (19-14) in its NCAA South Region opener this afternoon at 4:10 p.m.
The decision will be made at game time by UF trainer David “Duke” Werner.
Hill suffered a right turf toe injury when he collided with teammate Michael Frazier during Wednesday’s practice at Bishop Moore High School.
The freshman and backup to Scottie Wilbekin took part in the team’s light shoot-around at Amway Center later Wednesday afternoon (pictured right(, but Werner wanted to wait and see how Hill responded today at both the morning shoot at Bishop Moore and again during pre-game warmups.
Hill averaged 5.5 points and 3.1 assists this season, and played his best game of the season in Florida’s 84-65 victory over Kentucky on March 8.
