    Patric Young got in early foul trouble but came back strong in the 2nd half to help the 3rd ranked Florida Gators neuter the Mississippi Bulldogs on the road, 62-51. Patric owned the paint when he was on the floor, scoring 12 points with 7 rebounds and 3 blocked shots for 71 value credits. Dorian Finney-Smith had 8 points, 9 rebounds and 2 steals for 65 credits to sneak just ahead of Casey Prather who led the Gators in scoring with 16 points (7/8 shooting) and 7 rebounds for 64 value credits. Scottie Wilbekin had a season high 8 assists but 3 turnovers dropped him to fourth with 59 value credits.

    Team Stats: This was a low scoring game marked by putrid freethrow shooting by both teams (8-19 Gators, 1-6 Bulldogs). The Gators played like a cat playing with a mouse. As in the Alabama game, Florida displayed spurts of brilliant defense to gain a lead before letting Mississippi State get back to within a couple baskets. Offensively the Gator had a good 46% shooting percentage from the field, a positive 14/9 assist-to-turnover ratio, and an 8 board rebounding advantage (38/30). Overall the game wasn't overly dramatic as the Gators seemed to gain control at will for another solid SEC road victory.

    Something just seems off about these stats as Yegeutte should be a lot closer to 0 then what he was, also Prather should have been down a bit more as his missed FTs really hurt us.

    Casey shot 7/8 from the field. 16 points on only 8 FGA is remarkable.
    Will Yeguete only took 1 FGA and had 4 boards, an assist, a steal and no turnovers for 26 value credits.

    Everyone missed freethrows. Prather was off at the line due in part to a stiff back after a fall in the first half.

    Willy Yegs does so many things that the casual basketball fans misses. Is he one of our primary offensive contributors? Of course not. But he is as good a defender as we have, playing undersized at both the four and the five, and does so many of the little things. The comments in the game thread are not short of sickening, as many of our fans don't have a sniff of what WY contributes.

    I'll take a near 3:1 assist to turnover ratio.

    Interesting that the interior 3 did the best statistically.

    16 points on 8 shots from the field is INCREDIBLE!!!!!

    I mean, I am a fairly good basketball player, and I probably would have trouble managing that against 8 year old opponents playing with an 8 foot high basket (which I can reach while standing). Simply INCREDIBLE!!!

    I rarely post on them and frequently wait until after the game to review the thread.

    It's very tempting to try to step in and say "calm down," but that would only start trouble. Every possession is not life and death and every turnover isn't a foreshadowing of defeat.

    Where was it said that defense was meaningless?
