No. 17 Missouri Drops 83-52 Decision to No. 10 Florida

Scottie Wilbekin had 13 points and 10 assists, his first career double-double, and No. 10 Florida thumped No. 17 Missouri 83-52 on Saturday. The victory was coach Billy Donovan's 400th with the Gators, making him the third coach in Southeastern Conference history to accomplish that feat with the same school. He joined Kentucky's Adolph Rupp and LSU's Dale Brown in the 400-win club. Florida, which won its sixth consecutive game, also made a statement about being the class of the Southeastern Conference. Maybe the most impressive aspect of Florida's latest lopsided victory was Wilbekin's defense. The junior guard handled Missouri's Phil Pressey. Pressey finished with two points on 1-of-7 shooting. He had 10 turnovers and six assists. Jabari Brown led the Tigers (13-4, 2-2) with 16 points and Keion Bell added 14. Missouri played without senior forward Laurence Bowers for the third consecutive game. Regardless, few could have seen such a beatdown coming in Gainesville.

Every once in a while, a conversation arises on Ticked Off Tuesday that really makes me think. Such was the case when a listener called in about an experience with a local establishment in which she believed she was turned away on the basis of her sexual orientation.
