    MISSISSIPPI STATE AT FLORIDA

    When: Wednesday, 7 p.m. (EST)
    Where: Exactech Arena/O'Connell Center, Gainesville, Fla.
    Records: Florida (11-4, 3-0), Mississippi State (13-2, 1-1)
    TV: SEC Network (Roy Philpott and Brooke Weisbrod)
    Radio: Gator IMG Sports Network (Mick Hubertand Mark Wise)




    STAKES (The Setup)

    [​IMG]
    Mike Whitewill try to win a third game against Mississippi State in as many tries as Florida's coach.

    Florida has won five straight, including back-to-back on the Southeastern Conference road, to move to 3-0 in league play for the second straight season and fifth time in the last six. The Gators, who currently sit alone atop the league standings, went to Texas A&M and dismantled the undermanned Aggies with a ridiculous shooting display, then chased that effort with a gritty comeback on the road at Missouri, capped by a great play by great senior. ... Mississippi State won its SEC opener by upsetting Arkansas at hoe, then lost 64-58 Saturday at rival Ole Miss. The Bulldogs are one of four teams to play just one league game to date (such as the case for the teams not competing in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge last this month). They're also one of 11 jumbled in the middle of the conference standings at either 2-1, 1-1 or 1-2. ... UF leads the all-time series 64-49, a record that includes seven straight wins, a 39-12 mark at home, and two victories in as many tries under CoachMike White.... In the most recent meeting, the Gators went to Starkville and won a 57-52 bloodbath last Feb. 18, in what was their first game after losing centerJohn Egbunuto a season-ending knee injury. Florida struggled to score, with just two players reaching double figures, and blew a 12-point second-half lead, as the Bulldogs tied the game at 52 with just over two minutes left. A putback by sophomoreKevarrius Hayes, who replaced Egbunu in the starting lineup, gave the Gators the lead for good, as Hayes went on to finish with nine points, 10 rebounds and four blocks. Junior forwardDevin Robinsondid not score, but grabbed 10 rebounds.

    Ah...but your OGT features a nice big pic of CMW in the center immediately making it visually appealing IMO. Matter of fact that’s what we need around here is more pics of Mike White! :p

    In case anyone's curious how the Bulldogs look (also these commentators will be calling our game). I watched the first half just to get a glimpse of this team. They have quite a few athletic guards but no one offensively gifted around the perimeter. Their guards love to take you off the dribble and create contact. Bodes well for us since they don't go inside much if at all. They also don't handle double teams well. Our transition offense will be very important since they're a good defensive team in the halfcourt but they don't play good transition defense.

    Was I saying anything about it? Perhaps I mistakenly did. Please clarify. :cool:
    I will say this about Hall's OGT write-up ^^^ above, he didn't inaccurately list Egor as the Gators' leading scorer (which I did on UF v. Mizzou write-up :oops:). That error is even more ridiculous when you consider that Jalen (team's actual leading scorer) is my current fav Gator....Ah well.

    Meantime, for @gatorjjh and everyone else here craving "more Dazzlers" pics, enjoy!

    You mean you don't want to see more of HallGator's avatar photos but instead more of CMW? Hall is going to be there for you thru think and thin. I mean just because his avatar comes from the days of black and white shouldn't be held against him.
    My 2 cents, thanks for the Dazzlers!

    I watched the Ole Miss game. MSU was handling them pretty well before handing them the game late. Weatherspoon is quick. We should give him strep early and we'll be fine.

    Seriously I would harass him and not let him get any comfort all game. Might be hard without Cheez 100% if at all.

    Not sure why we seem to have trouble scoring at home.
