FSU Basketball dominates Florida to continue win streak

FSU Basketball dominates Florida to continue win streak

"We did a good job of contesting shots, but when we did take shots they knocked them down".

Mann scored nine of his points during a span of 1:09 midway through the first half, then had an offensive rebound tap-in, a three-point play and a layup during a span of 2:10 in the second half that helped put the game away. "Tonight was the epitome of soft".

What the Gators showed Monday night against unranked Florida State (7-0) was entirely different, though.

The Seminoles never trailed in the second half while ballooning their lead down the stretch for their fourth straight win in the in-state rivalry series, marking their longest such streak ever against the Gators.

"We've got to become way better on the defensive glass and in defensive transition, which we hung our hat on a year ago", White said.

They will be going for their first victory over a team ranked in the top five since 1984, and the Ramblers, in fact, have not beaten any ranked team in almost nine years. "Very disappointing effort", White said. The Florida Gators are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.1 rebounds per game.

"Our overall toughness on the interior", coach Mike White said about the defensive issues after the loss.

On Monday night, Florida State pushed Florida around in many ways and scored a surprisingly easy 83-66 victory.

Florida is still one of the most entertaining teams in the country, and when it is making shots, it is one of the best teams in the country. The Florida Gators are averaging 94.7 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 81 points on 43 percent shooting. Walker was 10 of 11 from the free-throw line and Cofer made four 3-pointers. FSU also had its way on the boards, outrebounding the Gators 28-21 in the first and outscoring Florida 14-6 in second-chance points.

Authorities said the gun Garcia Zarate used was stolen from the auto of an off-duty agent for the Bureau of Land Management. On social media, many advocating for the border wall have used #KatesWall as they condemned the acquittal of Garcia Zarate.

"It's super humbling", Hudson said. "This was the kind of game I thought we really needed". But instead, White said, it was FSU who threw the first punch and didn't stop punching. "So, we've got to get back to work, obviously".

Hamilton's team was led by C.J. Walker's 24 points and Cofer's 19 points.

"Beating Florida is important to everyone, especially back home in Tallahassee", said junior guard Terance Mann, who had a career-high 25 points and added eight rebounds.

"We're accustomed to playing against crowds like this: passionate crowds in the ACC".

Monday wasn't the first time Florida dealt with a cold shooting night from the floor, but it was the first time it cost Mike White's squad a game. We've had games that we've won that shots haven't fallen. "You can't win when they're playing harder and they're tougher than us".

The Ramblers are going to need plenty of that offense against a Florida team that's already scored over 100 four times this season and will likely be a bit frustrated due to their most recent game. He has three double-doubles in seven games. It doesn't help that 2015 and 2016 were somewhat disappointing seasons, or that he was at the helm of a preseason No. 3 team in 2017 that went 5-6 before he left.

But the Gators' strength turned to a weaknesses Monday night.

Guard Egor Koulechov said the loss might have awakened the Gators. It was a lot tougher. Again it comes down to being more accountable.

"I was pleased with our focus", Moser said. I wasn't buying that and I've expressed that to you guys.
