A little under 10 minutes to tip-off. The Rowdy Reptiles are here and have been for a while.

Gators have been dealing with the flu this week but each of the players who got it will play today.

Gators get the opening tip but can't convert on an Appleby fadeaway. They get a great stop on FSU to the roars of the O'Connell Center crowd. Duruji now at the line for 2.

Duruji only hits one of two. It's 1-0 with 18:30 to play. McKissic then fouls.

Florida State makes both FTs for the 2-1 lead. Gators go fast and Duruji gets the hoops and the harm on a break. He converted the And-1 and it's 4-2.

Gators are playing some active defense. They've come out with energy and are playing really sound defensively. The Noles can't seem to find space.

Colin Castleton is pumped right now. Every time there's been a good play on defense he's exclaimed or shouted. Gators are now getting it in the cup. They lead 8-2 with 14:43 in the first half. Fleming's about to go the line after getting fouled on a fast break off a Castleton block.

Gators are not converting at the charity stripe right now. Two-for-five to start the game.

Not a lot of offense. Lid's on the rim for both schools as it's 10-5 at the under-12. Gators just 4-for-14 from the field and 0-for-3 from three.

Gators cannot afford to play half court on the offensive end. FSU's super athletic and long. Makes it a nightmare to play against.

Noles get back-to-back stops and Castleton responds. They'll have to move through him in the halfcourt for the offense to work.

FSU three ball ties it up at 12. Anthony Duruji comes right back and makes Florida's first 3PG of the game. Another FSU three makes it 15-15.

Gators get caught in with the shot clock running out. It's 17-15 at the under-8 timeout.

There's also a sizeable Florida State contingent in O'Dome and they're pretty vocal. Cheering loud for good plays and heckling Gator players at the FT line.

Gators shooting 7-22 from the field and 17 percent from three. FSU? 5-16 and 50 percent. Both not hitting many FTS.

Noles came out and scored five straight out of the TO. McKissic gets them two back. It's 20-19, Florida State.

McKissic gets called for his second foul and the Gators will likely be without him the rest of the half. FSU in the bonus and goes 1-for-2 from the line

Fouls are starting to pile up for the Gators. Appleby now picks up his second. Elijah Kennedy now in the game because of it.

At the under-4 TO, Florida trails 23-22. Mike White is getting onto the refs to start it. The ref who called the travel had to do it from across the court.

Myreon Jones makes his first three of the game coming out of the TO. He's 1-7 and 1-4 respectively. Gators lead 25-24 as Hamilton burns a timeout.

In my opinion, you have to play through Castleton at the half court to get the offense freed up. Only guy who can really deal with FSU's length. He makes 1-2 at the FT line. It's 26-25 Florida.

Malik Osborne's starting to heat up. Just wetted a ball from three and it's 30-28, Florida State after Castleton scoring off an offensive rebound.
