Gators to miss scoring leader against Ole Miss

Florida will be without scoring leader Michael Frazier when the Rebels visit Thursday night.

When Ole Miss beat Florida 72-71 in Oxford on Jan. 24, the Gators were 12-for-20 from 3-point range. They shot it well both halves, and much of that success was due to Frazier, who was 6-for-8 from the arc, 7-for-7 from the free throw line and finished with 27 points.

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said the Rebels made some scouting report errors in leaving Frazier open.

With Frazier out perhaps the Rebels can focus on Dorian Finney-Smith, who was 4-for-5 from the arc in that game.

Frazier is a 6-4 guard, Finney-Smith a 6-8 forward.
