Reeves averaged 8.5 points per game for Florida in 2022. During the past two seasons, Reeves played in 60 games for the Gators. Reeves was the fifth-highest leading scorer on the team just behind Kyle Lofton, who averaged 8.7 points per game.
The Yellowjackets fired former coach Josh Pastner after finishing with a 15-18 record. Pastner coached in Atlanta for the past seven seasons.
First-year coach Todd Golden led Florida to an appearance in the NIT and a 16-17 record. Two of the biggest wins under Golden in 2022 were in The Swamp against No. 20 Missouri and No. 2 Tennessee.
Florida’s season was ended after the Gators lost to UCF in the NIT 67-49.
Another recent transfer from the Florida basketball program was Trey Bonham. Bonham originally transferred into the program from the Virginia Military Institute in April of 2022.
A player like Reeves with multiple years of experience will surely be missed.
