      Dribble, drive and layup for Kugel.

      Thomas answers with a 3, Vandy with their first lead of the game.

      ‘Dores shooting a perfect 5-5 and lead 11-8.

      Kugel has the ball knocked away, had to run across the court to grab it (even got yelled at by Golden for going slow) and then took it himself for a bucket

      Kugel is 2-2 for 4 points.

      Castleton adds another bucket for 4 points (2-3)

      My oh my Riley Kugel

      Vanderbilt knows how to shoot, I’ll tell you that.

      Florida isn’t shooting bad by any means today.

      8-13 on FG attempts.

      0-4 from 3 is holding them back

    • #31393

      ITG Staff

      Also, we haven’t had a stoppage of play yet. 8 full minutes of basketball

    • #31394

      Beautiful step back jumper from Lofton followed by a Euro-step layup on the fast break.

      4 quick points.

      Oh lordy Alex Fudge.

      Fell down, launched the ball to try and get a foul (no call) but falls in anyways.

      First bucket for him, but Vandy answers with a 3

      Bonham pivoted 360 degrees and draws a foul, heading to the line.

      U8 media timeout: Vanderbilt 29, Florida 24

      ‘Dores 5-10 from deep. UF 0-7.

      Not to mention the ad they just played in the stadium was about how the Florida Credit Union donates money every time Florida makes a 3….

      Gotta hit one

      Bonham hits his first FT and a timeout is immediately called. How fun

      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Teams shooting nearly identical.

      VU is 12-21, UF is 12-22. 3-pt shooting is the opposite though. No need to beat a dead horse with a stat.

      Rebounding and assists are nearly identical, too.

      VU out-rebounding 10-9, both teams with 5 assists

    • #31405

      Bonham goes 2-2 from the line, his first points.

      Castleton doing Castleton things. Drives in, throws it up and gets the bucket. 10 points. Florida turns it over on the next possession, Bonham goes out.

      Jones, Reeves, Kugel, Fudge and Castleton are the 5 on the floor

      FLORIDA HITS A 3

      Kowacie Reeves gets Florida’s first deep shot to go in.

      1-9, VU leads 32-31

      Castleton picks up a foul on the other end

    • #31410
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      That shot was massive. Ends a 3PT scoring drought, but it also helps Reeves, who hasn’t shot well at all in recent games.

      Robbins goes 2-2 from the line

    • #31411

      Castleton vs. Robbins is one of the best matchups I’ve seen while watching basketball.

      Going right at each other

      LORD HAVE MERCY KOWACIE REEVES.

      Just put Robbins on a poster. 1-hand slam gives Florida the lead. Stadium went to their feet. Incredible play

      Robbins and Manjon hit shots to put the lead back up to 3, Reeves gets another bucket to cut it.

      Ironically, even with some of the missed calls, VU has still been called for more fouls today (11-7).

      We are just not a good basketball team. Highly unlikely we will be in the NCAA tourney unless we win the SEC tourney which ain’t happening. The bad thing is we may only have one SEC caliber player on this team and he is playing his last handful of games with the Gators. We may be even worse next season. I’m starting to agree with folks who say Strickland needs to go. We have gone from being the elite overall athletic department in the SEC to a lower tier one.
