After 20 minutes at Memorial Gym in Nashville, the Florida Gators trail the Vanderbilt Commodores 30-27. It's been a relatively slow-paced game so far, as neither team has run out on the offensive end in the first half. The Gators were led by Erving Walker, who had 10 points on four of six shooting from the field. John Jenkins has been hot for the 'Dores, hitting all three attempts from behind the arc for a game-high 11 points.
Patric Young has battled the Vandy front line on the inside, grabbing six boards against Festus Ezeli and company. It has been an evenly matched game thus far, but both teams are looking for a nice boost before championship week in a clash between two surefire NCAA tournament teams.
