It was 6:45 a.m. on a Saturday, more than four hours before tip-off against Mississippi, and Florida guard Michael Frazier II was in the visiting arena putting up shots.
About 400 of them.
By the time Frazier was done, he was soaked in sweat and reeking from the hour-long workout.
For him, this was the look, feel and smell of success.
Frazier's sharp-shooting prowess comes at a price. He's one of coach Billy Donovan's hardest workers, spending countless extra hours in the gym, and it's paying off big time for the top-seeded Gators (36-2).
While Florida's four seniors are getting significant attention at the Final Four, Frazier is the one to watch against Connecticut on Saturday night.
