      Duke has beaten Oregon State. That means if Florida wins tonight they’ll take on Duke tomorrow. If they lose they’ll take on Oregon State.

      It’s up to a 12-0 run. Florida is starting slow these last two games.

      Nice to see Jitoboh out on the floor with Castleton getting some rest on the bench, good defense to force the travel and then the hard screen on the other end, Florida cuts the lead down to two.

      Florida is within 3, 21-18 with just over 10 to play in the half.

      Trey Bonham with the nice reverse layup, showing off the acrobatics.

      This game looks set to be a thriller, both teams are trading good buckets inside and from deep.

      Gators lead Xavier 35-34

      Trey Bonham is really imposing himself on this game, he leads the team with 12 points for a four point Florida lead, 38-34.

      No action as of yet for Kowacie Reeves with 34 seconds to go in the half. The broadcast mentioned that there could be some kind of message Golden is trying to send to the sophomore.

      Boun leads an 8-point run for Xavier to take the lead.

      Xavier 42 – 38 Florida at the half.

      Boum to the line, 2/2 and Xavier leads 44-38 to begin the half.

      Still no Reeves for the Gators as Castleton has 3 points at the half.

      Will Richard from three and the layup off the steal, Gators cut the lead to one, 44-43

      Bonham with the and-1. He’s been by far the most productive Gator on the offensive side.
      All tied at 46.

      Bonham is on fire, another three for him but no answer on the defensive side as Boum gets a bucket. Gators down 49-50.

      Florida has turned up the intensity here in the second half. UF up by 3.

      Gators are creating offense now, two forced turnovers and Richard on the break, Gators lead by three, 53-50.

      Another timeout, the Gators have no answer for Xavier’s Boum as he leads scoring with 20 points with over 15 minutes to go.

      Florida leads 53-52

      Castleton finds Kugel for his total of 10 points off the bench today.

      Where Castleton has struggled to score he has been able to find his teammates.

      Both teams cannot seem to get a stop or at least capitalize off any tops they do get.

      Fudge misses a break away dunk as Xavier hits the three on the counter.

      Xavier leads 61-58

      Timeout as Florida cannot seem to do anything right with their current rotation, Xavier’s back-to-back threes give them an 8-point run good for the 64-58 lead.

    • #26752

      The Gators have to stay away from the three-point line as the first offensive option, offense through Bonham has been working but they’ll hope for help from Castleton at some point.

    • #26753

      Castleton with his first bucket of the half, took it upon himself and drove for a pair, 64-60 Xavier.

      Xavier are starting to pull away with another three of a Kugel missed layup, yet another 5 point swing.

      Xavier up by 11.

      Xavier now has two players on 20 points.

      Boum 6/11 FG – 20 points

      Jones 7/10 – 20 points

      Xavier leads by eight as the game stops for a timeout, 73-65

      Ten point lead for Xavier as Jones is starting to pull away, Richard is the only lifeline for Florida at the moment. Gators down 7.

      Florida has narrowed it to 4.

      Trey bonham out of the designed-in-bound and the chance for a three-point play is good. Florida is now withing four.

      Horrible shot selection from Lofton.

      Castleton with the block and layup, the Gators have cut down the once 11-point lead to a two-point deficit.

      When Xavier was up by 11 it looked like they were going to pull away, but the Gators have stormed back.

      Troubles in bounding for Florida and another three for Xavier.

      Nunge winning the battle against Castleton, layup down under for both men and the Gators are within three.

      Xavier has pulled away from a lackluster Florida, 86-79 with 46.9 to go.

      Three breakaway steals with no points hurt a lot
