In a re-match of the Final Four, the Florida Gators hosted the UCONN Huskies at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on Saturday afternoon.

While this game was billed as a Final Four re-match both teams came limping into the game. The Huskies were losers in five of their last eight contests and the Gators had yet to add a quality non-conference win to their resumé. Still, the Florida players that remained from last seasons’ roster were looking for revenge. Much of the night it looked like they would exact it, building a 13-point lead in the second half.

However, the Gators faltered at the stripe, missing 12-of-20 free throws, including their final four in the last :40 of the game, eventually falling 63-59 at home.

About Nick de la Torre

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.

In a re-match of the Final Four, the Florida Gators hosted the UCONN Huskies at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on Saturday afternoon.

While this game was billed as a Final Four re-match both teams came limping into the game. The Huskies were losers in five of their last eight contests and the Gators had yet to add a quality non-conference win to their resumé. Still, the Florida players that remained from last seasons’ roster were looking for revenge. Much of the night it looked like they would exact it, building a 13-point lead in the second half.

However, the Gators faltered at the stripe, missing 12-of-20 free throws, including their final four in the last :40 of the game, eventually falling 63-59 at home.
