Florida Gator Basketball

Inside shots just don't get past UF
It seemed like a good idea at the time. Antoine Bronner of hapless (and the word was invented for this team) Savannah State thought he had an open path to the basket Wednesday night. But as he let go of the ball from a few feet out, they pounced.

Cakewalk at O-Dome
After the carnage was complete Wednesday night, Florida sophomore forward Joakim Noah was asked what his team got out of its 113-62 win against overmatched Savannah State

Gators Too Much For 'Have-Nots'
The University of Florida's Adrian Moss tries to get above Savannah State's Chris Linton during the first half of Wednesday's game in Gainesville. The Gators crushed Savannah 113-62.

ators bully Savannah St.
Like a boy beside a bully, Savannah State's Antonie Bronner stood in the circle and peered up toward his jump-ball opponent, Florida center Joakim Noah.

No trouble for Florida
The Gators led by as many as 49 points as they cruised to victory. A bigger test is next in an SEC road game at Tennessee.

Math adds up for Gators
The game pitted a team without a loss since last year's NCAA Tournament against one with a single win in two seasons.

Noah, Gators cruise to victory

Gators chomp lackluster Savannah State
There wasn't much to be decided at the O'Connell Center Wednesday. The Gators entered the game ranked No. 2 in the nation, riding a 17-game home winning streak dating back to last season. Savannah State came into Gainesville with no wins against Division I opposition and without a player taller than 6-foot-7 on its roster.

Meyer, Gators Add Another Tampa-Area Standout
University of Florida football coach Urban Meyer can be blamed for future Saturday traffic jams on Interstate 75 heading out of the Tampa Bay area.
