"We were pressing from the jump", said Florida's Mike White, who noted that the Gators had too much offensive urgency, "It was 'how quickly can I get a shot up, ' putting our head down against a team that does a good job swarming to the basketball and taking charges".

Defensively, the Gators had no answers to stop FSU junior swingman Terrence Mann, who led all scorers with a career-high 25 points.

For Loyola: Sophomore guard Chuck Champion leads the Greyhounds, averaging 18.5 points per game, but has appeared in just a pair of contests.

"What's really disappointing is, you guys have heard me use the word soft with this team".

"Tonight we grew up a little bit". "Tonight was the epitome of soft".

The Florida Gators went from looking like a Final Four contender to losing back-to-back games and losing its way on the defensive end. The Seminoles finished with a 23-11 edge in offensive boards and 24 second-chance points.

They will be going for their first victory over a team ranked in the top five since 1984, and the Ramblers, in fact, have not beaten any ranked team in almost nine years.

White said he is not exactly sure how to address the Gators' shortcomings. The Gators shot 6-for-25 from 3-point range and allowed Florida State to rebound 50 percent of its missed shots.

That mid-December defeat in Tallahassee came on the heels of a tough neutral-site loss to Duke, and White took longer than usual talking to his team in the locker room afterward before conveying his disappointment in his postgame comments.

Senior point guard Chris Chiozza, who was outstanding during the Gators' 2-1 run through that PK80 tournament in Portland, Ore., more than a week ago, simply didn't have it this time.

On Monday night, Florida State pushed Florida around in many ways and scored a surprisingly easy 83-66 victory. The Florida Gators are shooting 42.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free throw line. And Egor Koulechov scored 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting (1 of 7 from 3).

"It's super humbling", Hudson said. "And then we're about where we thought we were defensively, and that's not good enough".

Terance Mann: Florida State junior slasher Terance Mann responded from his worst performance of the season with the best effort of his career.

Hamilton's team was led by C.J. Walker's 24 points and Cofer's 19 points.

Mann made 11 of 17 shots and added eight rebounds.

"All toughness. That's it". "Every opposing big we've played has had a field day against us". "It was those two simple things, that's all it was", Hudson said. When the shots don't fall, they'll be susceptible to an upset. "When we're not making shots at a high level, our deficiencies are exposed". "You can't win when they're playing harder and they're tougher than us".

Most people focused on what Florida State lost from last year's team entering this season. The Florida Gators have won 12 of their last 14 home games.

White is eager to see if his team shows the resilience it will need the rest of the season.

The Loyola-Chicago Ramblers and Florida Gators meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Exactech Arena.

"This year's team, for whatever reason, has not bought into - at this point, it's still early - the importance of having a high communication level and having the utmost level of urgency, nearly panic mode, in transition defense", White said. It was a lot tougher. This team, again, is more skilled and we score better.
