The differences on the court include consistent effort and staying focused on defense, things that keep him from getting sent to the bench after lapses.
Denson does most of his damage on drives to the basket, attempting few 3-pointers. He's more adept at slipping past defenders, making seemingly awkward shots and heading to the free throw line with frequency.
Given his balance and deftness on those improbable shots, it seemed fitting that he sported a Spiderman jersey underneath his practice jersey.
"They call me slippery so I just find the lanes," Denson said. "I'm good at making the crazy up and unders. I practice them every day. That's just me. That's just my game."
Denson knows that keeping his streak going won't be easy against the Gators, but he was solid in the first meeting. Denson had 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting in the Tigers' 68-61 loss.
"I remember the first time I played them, it was very hard for me to score because they lock you in defensively," Denson said. "That's how they win all their games. This is a big challenge for me."
