The Florida Gators are the No. 1 team in college basketball. You could say they have had a successful season so far. Although they have one of the most well-rounded teams in the nation, one player is going to become a star in the 2014 NCAA tournament. That player is Michael Frazier II.

Frazier II went off in his last game by scoring 37 points. He shot 11-18 from behind the arc. Not a bad day at the office.

Casey Prather has led the team in scoring all season long, but his numbers have slowly been dropping. Prather is still a great player and arguably the best one on the Gators, so don’t think he is falling apart or anything like that. He just had an amazing start to the season and is coming back down to earth a little bit.

Frazier II is second on the team in scoring (13.1 PPG). He is shooting 44.1 percent from behind the arc and has made 94 threes in the process. If Florida ever needs a three-point basket, he is definitely the team’s man.

With a bigger stage, people can expect Frazier II to shine. Every single year players step up their games for the Big Dance and the Gators’ sharpshooter is going to be one of those players this season.

His 37 points last game are a sign of great things to come. Frazier II is already a good basketball player and is having a solid sophomore season, but expect him to put up more points per game in the tourney and expect him to get some national recognition. Expect him to become a star.
