Kevarrious Hayes rounds out the top three with 6 points, 7 boards, 2 steals and 3 blocks for 62 value credits. Team Stats: The Gators were just a little bit better in all categories in securing the home victory over the Bulldogs shooting 43% vs 40% and out rebounding Mississippi State 38 to 31. Florida had a significant advantage at free throw line scoring 12/16 versus only 5/7 for the Bulldogs. The Gators did not have a great Assist to Turnover ratio at 13/14 but their defense forced the Bulldogs into a very poor ratio of 9/16. The Gator defense turned what could have been a close game into a rout but only after the streaky offense contributed in spurts.
