Big Patric Young was MVG in turning back the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders 79-59. Patric led the Gators in scoring with 16 points including 6-8 from the charity stripe, and pulled down 6 rebounds with 3 assists to earn a value score of 77. Casey Prather was in foul trouble in the first half and did not score until the second half when he and the Gators caught fire. Casey scored 11 points on 4-5 shooting with 4 rebounds 2 assists and 2 steals to earn 51 value credits. Will Yeguete nosed out several Gators for the third spot, as he also was 4-5 from the field with 5 rebounds for a value score of 47. Florida played tough defense in the first half holding Middle Tennessee to 26 points as the Gators struggled themselves in scoring 34 without a true point guard and Prather on the bench in early foul trouble. Both teams opened up in the 2nd half with the athleticism of Prather and Finney-Smith out pacing the Blue Raider offense. As expected the assist/turnover ratio was mediocre at 10/12 but the Gators were able to gain a 7 board rebound advantage and shot a sizzling 83% from the line to offset the uneven play without either Hill or Wilbekin at point.
