  8. Five observations from Saturday afternoon

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Florida is that good. Yes, Missouri was missing leading scorer Laurence Bowers, and yes, the game was in Gainesville. Even so, what Florida did to Missouri on Saturday -- an 83-52 stomping that began in the first minute and never relented -- wa...

  12. James Fraschilla's trick shots for Hayden
