Terance Mann scored 25 points, CJ Walker added 17 and Florida State upset No. 5 Florida 83-66 on Monday night to remain undefeated this season. The Seminoles move to 7-0 and also extended their winning streak against the Gators to four games, their longest in the 68-game history of the series.
Mann made 11 of 17 shots and added eight rebounds. Every time Florida looked like it would make a run, Mann answered on the other end. The junior had a tip-in and two three-point plays in the final 8 minutes.
Florida State outrebounded Florida 51-34, including 23-11 on the offensive glass. The Seminoles outscored the Gators 36-20 in the paint and 12-2 on fast breaks.
Florida guards Jalen Hudson scored 16 points, KeVaughn Allen scored 15 points, Egor Koulechov added 11 points and Chris Chiozza and were a combined 13 of 40 from the field, including 4 of 20 from 3-point range. Chiozza was scoreless until making three free throws down the stretch.
Equally troubling for the Gators: A season-high 17 turnovers for Florida as they now will turn their thoughts to Loyola-Chicago on Wednesday night.
