Career Highlights: An Honorable Mention All-American (Associated Press) in 2003-04 and a First Team All-SEC selection by both the league coaches and the Associated Press each of the last two seasons. A member of the All-SEC Tournament squad in 2004 after helping the Gators to the final, a march that included a 35-point showing in the semifinals against Vanderbilt, the best performance by a Gator since 1982. His 17.9 points per game in 2003-04 were the most ever by a Billy Donovan-coached player. Set a UF record with 99 three-pointers in 2003-04 and had 94 in 2004-05.

Junior (2004-05): Led the Gators in scoring for the second straight year, averaging 17.5 points. Averaged 20.8 points in SEC play to lead the league, the only player who averaged 20-plus points in conference play. Scored 20-plus in eight of 16 SEC games, including two 30-point games. Scored in double figures in 30 of 32 games, including 11 20-point efforts. Led the SEC in free throw shooting, hitting 90.0 percent from the line and is UF's all-time leader in the category at 86.4 percent.

Sophomore (2003-04): Named First Team All-SEC by both the coaches and the Associated Press. Led the Gators in scoring (17.9 ppg). Scored in double figures in 25 games played on the season. Scored at least 20 points 14 times over the course of the season. Scored 35 points against Vanderbilt in the SEC tournament, a career high and the best output by a Gator since 1982. Led the team in free throw percentage (85.9). Led the SEC in three-point shooting, converting 99-of-233 attempts, good for 42.5 percent.

Freshman (2002-03): Finishing second on the Gators with 12.3 ppg, earning SEC Freshman of the Year honors in the process. Started the first five games of his college career and then became, arguably, the SEC's top sixth man before starting eight of the final nine games of the season. Hit a team-high 74 three-pointers for the season, which was a UF freshman record (old mark was 64 by Teddy Dupay, 1998-99) and the fifth-highest total in school history overall.

Strengths: Great quickness, which allows him to separate from defenders. Has good range on his jumpshot and solid ball-handling skills.

Personal: Nickname is Peep. His cousin, Terrance Roberson, played for the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. Has a tattoo of "I love this game" inscribed underneath a basketball on his right shoulder.
