I think you don't understand the dynamic of that Gator basketball team. While Taurean brought the ball up the court most of the time, it was ball movement that got the Gators many of their points. They didn't just disperse the scoring load, but the facilitating load.
The big guys were also excellent ball handlers so they put the ball on the floor a lot therefore reducing his assist numbers. He's obviously more of a scoring point guard and he's got a lot to prove if he's going to play in the NBA, but I don't think you can justifiably criticize him for not averaging more assists.
