Wednesday February 23, 2000Gator men's hoops wins 90-68 over Georgia Bulldogs

Athens, GA

Mike Miller (pictured left) tied a career high with 25 points as the ninth ranked Florida Gators defeated Georgia 90-68 Wednesday night in Athens. The score was tied at 31-31 at the half, but the Gators outscored the Bulldogs 59-37 the rest of the way. Donnell Harvey added 13 points and five rebounds as the Gators improved to 21-5 and retained a share of the SEC East lead with a 10-3 record. The Gators have now won five SEC road games in a single season for the first time since the 16-game format was instituted. Miller, who has scored 25 points in a game twice this season, converted a three-point play with a basket and a free throw to give the Gators a 44-43 lead early in the second half. That sparked a 28-12 run that helped the Gators open up a 71-55 lead. Freshman Justin Hamilton scored all eight of his points during that run. Brett Nelson scored 10 points, with seven coming from the free throw line. Georgia dropped to 10-16 and 3-10 in the SEC. The Bulldogs were led in scoring by Anthony Evans' 17 points. The Gators next game is scheduled for Sunday when the 11th ranked Auburn Tigers visit the O-Connell Center for a 12 noon tip-off.
