Florida fumbles away lead, falls in heartbreaker
Heartbreak. Anguish. Gut ripped out.
Whatever words you want to use, the Florida Gators basketball team has felt them not once, but twice in the last year.
For the second season in a row, Florida blew a double-digit lead with less than 10 minutes to go in the second half to watch its chance at a Final Four slip away as its opponent staged a remarkable comeback.
“It feels terrible. I mean, we had a lead, we gave it up late,” senior point guard Erving Walker said. “We just didn't make shots and didn't defend them. And they were able to get down the lane and make big plays, Russell Smith and the rest of those guys.”
