Gators down ‘Dores in 73-65 thriller
For the second straight game, the Gators looked like they were ready to roll over their opponent early in the first half. But just like Thursday night against the Gamecocks, a sloppy end to the first half and slow start to the second allowed the Commodores to cut a 10-point deficit down to three, at 37-34 heading into the half.
Just like Thursday night, Florida (19-4, 7-1 SEC) used a burst of energy midway through the second half to take down Vanderbilt (16-7, 5-3 SEC) 73-65 and extend its home winning streak to 19 games.
“I thought we were teetering to start the second half,” coach Billy Donovan said. “I just encouraged those guys to keep battling and fighting, and I thought we did that.”
