Tonight: No. 7 UF at Mississippi State

By Compiled by JOANNE KORTH

© St. Petersburg Times, published January 10, 2001

WHEN/WHERE: 8; Humphrey Coliseum, Starkville, Miss.

TV/RADIO: Sunshine, 11 p.m. (tape delay); WDAE-AM 620.

RECORDS: UF (10-2, 0-1 SEC); MSU (9-2, 1-0).

COACHES: UF -- Billy Donovan (88-51, fifth season; 123-71 overall). MSU -- Rick Stansbury (43-31, third season).

KEY PLAYERS: UF -- Udonis Haslem, C, 6-8 Jr. (16.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg); Matt Bonner, F, 6-9 So. (13.2 ppg, 6.8 rpg); Brett Nelson, G, 6-3 So. (11.6 ppg, 4.4 apg). MSU -- Antonio Jackson, G, 6-4 Sr. (12.8 ppg, 3.4 rpg); Robert Jackson, C, 6-8 Jr. (12.7 ppg, 9.5 rpg); Tang Hamilton, F, 6-7 Sr. (12.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg).

NOTES: Florida is without two injured starters: forward Brent Wright (foot) and guard Teddy Dupay (back). Wright is out 3-6 weeks, and Dupay is out 4-6 weeks. Down to eight scholarship players, the Gators will have trouble applying full-court pressure. ... The Bulldogs have the SEC's top rebounder in Robert Jackson and rank third nationally with a plus-13 rebounding margin. If Haslem gets into foul trouble, as he did in Sunday's 69-68 loss at South Carolina, the Gators will be in trouble.
