Timmy Bowers drives to the basket against Florida

Despite 14 points by No. 15 Timmy Bowers, the MSU Bulldog basketball team was unsusuccesful Tuesday night in expanding its 10-game winning streak. Before more than 10,540 Humphrey Coliseum fans and a national television audience via ESPN, the men in maroon and white fell to the University of Florida Gators 74-66. The crowd was the second largest in the coliseum’s 28-year history. Now 10-2, the Bulldogs next play at Louisiana State University Saturday night.
