Michael Frazier II was a lone bright spot in an otherwise frustrating road loss to the the Arkansas Razorbacks, 69-80. Frazier scored 11 points and pulled down 9 rebounds with 1 steal and no turnovers for 73 value credits. Scottie Wilbekin scored 14 points, had 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 turnovers for 57 value credits. Michael Rosario led the Gators in scoring with 15 points along with 2 assists, 2 steals and 2 turnovers to get a solid 51 value credits.
The Razorbacks played as if they were the 2nd ranked team and took it to the Gators pulling to a quick 23 point lead early in the game and never looked back. They played a 9-man rotation, out hustling Florida and consistently hitting open shots from the perimeter, in the paint and off Gator turnovers. The 11 point margin at game end did not reflect how significantly the Razorbacks dominated the game and how much they bothered the Gators with their quickness and agressive physical play. Arkansas put on a real show for their home town hog fans putting up a whopping 80 points on a Gator defense that had only be giving up an average of 51 points per game.
The Gators have several days of fun practice to work out their kinks before playing a home game against Mississippi State where they hope to regain their form after a lackluster performance in Fayetteville
