Florida’s players and coaches knew they’d be overmatched and undersized in the front court for Saturday’s road date at Mississippi State, but they didn’t expect the final statistics to look like a college team battling a NBA team.

Sophomore forward Tolu Smith rang up career marks of 27 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, but his domination inside was just a snapshot of what the Bulldogs did to the Gators at Humphrey Coliseum. They outscored UF in the paint by 22. They out-rebounded the Gators by 21, including nine on the offensive glass and 14 on second-chance points, en route to a 72-63 Bulldog win.
