The No. 24/23 Florida Gators lost their first true road game of the season, falling to the Mississippi State Bulldogs 71-64 Saturday.

While every Florida player managed to score, the Gators' offensive performance in Starkville was one to forget.

Florida's struggles from the free throw line continued as they only made nine shots in 19 attempts and their non-foul shooting wasn't too sharp either.

The Gators shot 23.8 percent from three-point range and recorded a 39.7 percent overall shooting percentage.

Mississippi State shot only one percent better (40.7) from the field, but posted a 34.8 three-point percentage and an 82.6 mark from the charity stripe.

Erving Walker led Florida with 18 points, Vernon Macklin contributed 10, and Chandler Parsons continued his rebound tear, grabbing 10 boards to go along with his nine points.

The Gators play the No. 19/22 Vanderbilt Commodores in a home game Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. on ESPN.
