All eyes will be on Billy Donovan on Saturday.

No, not because he will finally return to the sideline for the Gators.

But because the floor at the O’Dome will be renamed the Billy Donovan Court at halftime of Florida’s game against Vanderbilt.

In the midst of a turbulent season, fans can put aside the current state of the team and honor the man who thrusted Florida’s men’s basketball program into the national limelight and won back-to-back national titles.

It’ll be easy to forget that there’s a basketball game going on amid all of the festivities.
