Keep an eye out for the starting lineup.

Will Mike White simply slide Jitoboh in for Castleton?

Will Felder or Reeves start in a small ball lineup?

A safe or guns blazing approach dictate the game tonight?

It's all in Mike White's hands.

Reeves and Fleming each had 14 in the Gators' last game, they look to provide the spark missing with Castleton out.

Mike White is being a bit reactionary with his subs at the moment.

Reeves jumped on a pump fake, White called for his sub.

A Stingy defense gave up a layup deep into the clock and Jitoboh was called on immediately.

Mississippi State finding both easy and hard points around the rim. Mike White is scrambling to find a lineup that he is satisfied with.

Appleby connects from three (2/3) and the Gators now have back to back steals.

The energy is there, the crowd is there, but the points are not flowing as much.
