Looks like Mike Rosario will get to play against his former school after all.
Florida coach Billy Donovan said Wednesday that the reserve wing -- who spent his first two seasons at Rutgers -- participated in practice Monday and went full-contact on Tuesday, according to the Gators' official Twitter feed. Rosario had missed Florida's past two games with a back strain, and Donovan had previously listed him as "doubtful" for Thursday's game at Rutgers.
But that's changed now.
Which adds a storyline to the week.
Rosario averaged 16.2 points as a freshman and 16.7 points as a sophomore at Rutgers.
The 6-foot-3 New Jersey native transferred after his sophomore season.
He's averaging 9.4 points for the 10th-ranked Gators this season.
