      Will Richard in PK Legacy games:

      18 pts in loss to Xavier

      Castleton with a good old one-hand slam, but called for a travel. First turnover by Florida today

      WVU with their first lead of the game from a layup by Bell.

      Bonham gets on the scoreboard with two free throws.

      Strong move by Fudge draws a blocking foul. Big call in Florida’s favor

      Fudge goes 1-2 from the line

      Five Gators with points today

      Fudge scores but ANOTHER offensive foul on the Gators

      Jitoboh gets the whistle

      Strong defensive play by Richard to poke it loose, but Jitoboh draws another foul

    • #27209
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      The fouls are taking the early MVP award today. This time on WVU

      WVU in the double-bonus (FLA 9 fouls)
      WVU called for 4

    • #27210
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Strong defensive effort by Felder, followed up with a good shot from Kugel

      WE GOT A DUNK SHOW

      Matthews dunk and Kugel dunks

      Offensive output shining

      Castleton in early foul trouble with 3. Been on the bench for a while

    • #27215
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Lofton called for a foul. Abysmal performance in the foul-area for Florida

      WVU leads 32-19, 8 of those points on FTs

    • #27216
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Add to that – Richard called for a foul going for an offensive rebound.

      Something about Florida athletic teams struggling with penalties/fouls

    • #27218
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Another offensive possession for WVU, another foul on Florida

      Jitoboh picks up his third, tied with Castleton.

      Both of Florida’s bigs in foul trouble

      Wonder if we’ll see any Szymczyk tonight

    • #27219
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Foul and one for Richard.

      After a fast-start, it’s taken a while for him to score, but a strong grab on an errant pass and draws the foul

    • #27220
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Richard draws another one. Lucky, too. Kugel’s alley-oop attempt on the pass was nowhere near the basket.

      Richard misses the FT, though.

      Gators now in the bonus

    • #27221
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Media timeout: WVU 37, UF 24 (3:59 1H)

      Richard now with 8 points (3-5 shooting)

      Mitchell and Stevenson lead all scorers with 9 each for WVU

    • #27222
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Another foul, this time on WVU

      Let’s take this time to look at team shooting.

      UF: 9-22 FG, 1-5 3PT, 7-10 FT
      WVU: 12-28 FG, 2-6 3PT, 11-13 FT

      Bad shooting bought out by free throws

    • #27223
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Should add- both teams in the double bonus

    • #27224
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      UF calls a timeout, 2:08 1H

      WVU 39, UF 28

    • #27225
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Like the football team, defense is simply not existing.

      Easy layup gives WVU 41 total points in the first half.

      Lofton answers with a strong layup followed by another bucket.

      The transfer now has 8 points

    • #27226
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Lofton hits a FT, now has 9, UF team high

      Gators cut lead to 8

    • #27227
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      BIG turnover by WVU with 40 seconds left. Gators close to closing in

    • #27228
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Kugel misses a 3, WVU misses a 3 and we got a jumpball with .5 seconds.

    • #27229
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Gators miss a full-court shot, and we’ve hit halftime

      Gators end the half on a 5-0 run

    • #27230
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

    • #27231
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton and Jitoboh in early foul trouble.

      Not a good start for the Gator bigs. Small ball season coming up with Fudge and Felder.

    • #27232
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Should add- Kowacie Reeves has not been on the floor at all tonight. Niels Lane, too.

    • #27234
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton starts the first half, but Florida has already given up a 3 and turned the ball over

    • #27235
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      And the fouls continue, Felder called this time.

      Should just copy and paste the word “foul” for the rest of this one

    • #27236
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Lofton gets the scoring off for Florida, now leads all scores with 13 points (5-10)

    • #27237
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      WVU extends the lead to 20

      WVU 55, UF 35

    • #27238
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      10-0 run for the Mountaineers

    • #27239
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Yeah, this one is getting out of hand.

      WVU adds two more buckets and took a 61-35 lead before a Jitoboh bucket.

      TV timeout, Mountaineers lead 61-37.

    • #27240
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Another 3 for Matthews of WVU.

      Fudge answers with his own three.

      WVU: 6-11 from 3
      UF: 2-13 from 3

      Not good

    • #27241
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Niels Lane gets some rare minutes and immediately gets a bucket.

      Timeout on the floor: WVU 66, UF 42 (12:23 2H)

      Gators need some offensive production fast

    • #27242
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Never mind on the Lane bucket. Shot clock violation. Brutal

    • #27243
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton draws WVU’s first foul of the half and misses both FTs

      After strong performances all season, he only has 1 point tonight (0-4 from the field)

    • #27244
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Strong drive and spin from Fudge cuts the lead to 24 (still yikes).

      Fudge: 6 points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-2 FT), 7 rebounds, 1 assist

    • #27245
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Media timeout: WVU 68, UF 42 (7:50 2H)

      Time to change the channel if you’re watching. Or continue watching. Up to you. Gators need a major comeback

    • #27246
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Jitoboh with a nice hook shot.

      8 points off the bench

    • #27247
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Fudge with a tremendous block on the defensive end, but WVU with an offensive rebound, draws a foul and makes the bucket.

      Wague hits the FT

      WVU has 14 offensive rebounds

    • #27248
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Make that 15. Wague grabs the board off the 3PT miss and muscles his way in.

      WVU approaching a 30 point lead…

    • #27249
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton *finally* hits his first FG of the game on a putback miss by Kugel.

      Only 3 points tonight

    • #27250
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Timeout on the floor: WVU 77, UF 48 (3:50 2H)

      Yeah, this one’s over

    • #27251
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton draws a foul, but Florida is still not on the bonus

      WVU called for 4 fouls in the half
      UF called for 8

    • #27252
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton and Jitoboh now with 4 fouls each, and in comes Aleks Szmyczyk, who immediately picks up a foul.

      WVU with a 30-point lead after the free throws.

    • #27253
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      The epitome of brutal: Bonham goes 0-2 at the line

      HOWEVER, Gators do get the ball back and Kugel with a strong up-and-under.

      The true freshman has 6 points tonight

    • #27254
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Bonham again at the line, goes 1-2

      Gators cut the lead to 28 with 1:16 left.

    • #27255

      Well, it’s over. The only intrigue down the stretch was seeing if Florida could avoid a 30-point loss. They did, just barely, losing 84-55 to West Virginia. Now I can go back to watching Christmas Vacation full-time without switching back and forth.
