Patric Young led a very balanced Gator attack in a 72-47 thrashing of the FSU Seminoles. Patric made 5 of 7 shots for 10 points and a team leading 8 rebounds for a Value Score of 64. More impressive was his physical intimidation on defense. Kenny Boynton did not shoot well from the 3-point line but his defense and hustle resulted in 10 of his team leading 14 points off of FSU turnovers, ultimately giving him a Value Score of 58. Scottie Wilbekin nosed out a pack of Gators for third with a Value Score of 53 earned largely through a team leading 5 steals and 5 assists.
The Gator defense stole the ball from FSU faster than EW at a taco stand. Many steals were converted directly into Gator fast break layups. The resulting 37 point blowout lead enabled Gator freshmen to get quality minutes to finish the game and still keep the Seminoles under 50 points. FSU's 47 point output is their lowest total ever in their home Donald L. Tucker Center.
The Florida Gators have 10 days off to finish the academic semester before going on the road for their biggest challenge of the young year against the 8th ranked Arizona Wildcats.
