Basketball Report

The next opponent up on the Gators schedule will be the Arkansas Razorbacks - who are now 12-3 following an 88-61 blowout over the #8 Alabama Crimson Tide in Fayetteville yesterday.

With the big win to start SEC play yesterday, it's tough to put a finger on how good this Arkansas team is.  They have had a couple bad performances in losses against Texas Tech and at Missouri. They battled tough against the Texas Longhorns in a close loss on the road, which is nothing to hang your head about.

The game will be on ESPN on Tuesday at 7:00 pm.  This should be a nice test for the Gators following their win over Georgia to start SEC play on Saturday.

LSU star Glen Davis was in a car accident this morning, luckily nothing too serious.  Davis was hospitalized early today, but has been since released and will participate in an evening walkthrough with the team.

It has been reported that he will more than likely play on Tuesday night as the Tigers open up SEC play at Alabama.

There were a couple of upsets in Pac-10 play yesterday, as #1 UCLA fell to #17 Oregon and Washington State took out the #7 Arizona Wildcats.

The Ducks' Aaron Brooks scored 25 points and hit the game winning shot with 13 seconds left for the Ducks.  Another factor in the Ducks' win over the Bruins was excellent free throw shooting, as the team hit 19-21 from the free throw line.

Arizona shot poorly, 39%, in their overtime loss to Washington State.  This was a huge win for the Cougars and a tough one for the Pac-10 power Wildcats.

Finally, Clemson stayed unbeaten with a win over Georgia Tech.  The Tigers are now 16-0, and with the UCLA loss on Saturday, are the only undefeated team in college basketball.
