      Lofton’s break is over and he’s back in for Bonham.

      Reeves’ shot is no good, but a strong o-rebound for Richard and he’s able to put it in.

      His first bucket of the night and Florida leads 19-17.

      The Owls must’ve prayed to the 3-point gods today because they have been electric from deep. Another three, this time from Alijah Martin.

      What a defensive effort by Fudge, forces an air-ball 3 and draws a foul.

      The momentum has shifted

    • #26070
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Kowacie REEEEEEEEEVES. Another jumper.

      Gators down 4 with 2 minutes to go

      And a 3 from Martin. Florida has looked completely lost defensively today

      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Castleton draws a foul and goes 2-2.

      Back-to-back 30 point performances (31 today)

      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      And Niels Lane turns it over. They are reviewing it.

      Even if they find a way to win this one, this is an awful output by the Gators

    • #26074
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      Call stands. FAU ball.

      This one might be over

    • #26075
      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      We might have a fab-five Michigan mistake.

      FAU may have called a TO with 0 left…

      That would be a tech and UF ball

    • #26076
      Cam Parker

      IT IS A TECH. Wow, I’ve never seen it in person before. Will Richard will shoot

    • #26077

      Cam Parker
      ITG Staff

      The Gators just won go away! A 3 by Richard makes it a two-point game. They force a jumpball (poss. FAU). 8 seconds left

      Final: FAU 76, UF 74
