Coach Thornqvist thinks the Gators are beginning to peak at the right time.

UF head coach Roland Thornqvist met with the media on Monday as part of the UF All Sports Press Conference.

 

The Gators finished in a three-way tie for second in the final SEC regular-season standings and will be the No. 4 seed in the SEC Tournament that gets underway Wednesday at the University of Missouri.

 

As one of the top four seeds, the Gators earned a two-round bye and will begin play on Friday, April 18 at 6 p.m. ET.

 

Florida will play the winner of the match between No. 5 Texas A&M and either No. 12 Arkansas or No. 13 Missouri.

 

Last weekend, the Gators defeated No. 5 Vanderbilt and Kentucky to cap their regular season.
