Maten also is third in the league in rebounding at 8.8 rpg. and is the only SEC player ranked among the conference's top-10 in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage (No. 6) and free throw percentage (No. 9). ... Seven of the last 10 duels between the two rivals have been decided by single digits, including three by one possession.
