No. 10 Florida thumps No. 17 Missouri 83-52

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Scottie Wilbekin had 13 points and 10 assists, his first career double-double, and No. 10 Florida thumped No. 17 Missouri 83-52 on Saturday.

The victory was coach Billy Donovan's 400th with the Gators, making him the third coach in Southeastern Conference history to accomplish that feat with the same school. He joined Kentucky's Adolph Rupp and LSU's Dale Brown in the 400-win club.

Florida, which won its sixth consecutive game, also made a statement about being the class of the Southeastern Conference.

And the Gators (14-2, 3-0 SEC) aren't even fully healthy.

Erik Murphy scored 15 points despite playing with a broken finger, and Kenny Boynton added 14 against the Tigers (13-4, 2-2).

Murphy made 6 of 11 shots from the field, including three from 3-point range. Boynton did most of his damage in transition, helping turn Missouri's 21 turnovers into 34 points.

Nationals ace Max Scherzer added another incredible chapter to his legendary career Wednesday, pitching seven shutout innings against the Phillies after breaking his nose in a batting practice accident the day before. 

To honor Scherzer's toughness, one amazing Nats fan wore arguably the greatest shirt ever seen at a baseball game.

LeBron James reportedly puts together star-studded cast of players for Space Jam 2

LeBron James has begun assembling his team to take on the Monstars in Space Jam 2, and as you'd expect, the roster is full of star power.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, and Klay Thompson are expected to have key roles, along with WNBA players Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike. Several other NBA and WNBA players, including Nneka's sister Chiney Ogwumike, are expected to appear in the movie.

Fittingly, Davis will be teaming up with James in real life too, after the Lakers acquired the All-Star big man from the Pelicans. 

Space Jam 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on July 16, 2021. The movie will be produced by Black Panther and Creed director Ryan Coogler, while Terence Nance will direct.
