No. 10 Florida Chomps No. 17 Mizzou

Another nightmare in Gainesville.

Score: No. 10 Florida 83, No. 17 Missouri 52

Stars: Missouri: Jabari Brown 16 Pts. Florida: Scottie Wilbekin 13 Pts, 10 Ast.

Story: Florida convincingly defeated Missouri on Saturday in a game that was never even close. The Gators jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first 64 seconds and never looked back. Forward Erik Murphy led the way with 15 points and guard Scottie Wilbekin recorded a double-double. Florida's leading scoring Kenny Boyton added 14 points. 

The Tigers had a forgettable performance. They started out flat and never came close to recovering from an early deficit. Jabari Brown scored 16 points on 5-for-18 from the field. Phil Pressey had 10 turnovers and had one of his worst games in a Mizzou uniform. This game showed how badly the Tigers miss forward Laurence Bowers, who remained out of the lineup with a knee injury. 

Mizzou has an important week upcoming with home games against unranked South Carolina and Vanderbilt.
