I didn't say UF didn't play good defense. But the team was still fortunate that Kentucky didn't hit a shot. Just look at the stats. 6 turnovers and only 3 made baskets in the final 10 minutes of the game for the UF offense. Florida's defense didn't exactly bail out Florida either, as Kentucky was able to go on a 14-0 run in that span as well. Although I suppose you can argue that some of that was on the refs. Even with all of that, Florida played well enough in the first 30 minutes to blow Kentucky out, if they had just hit their free throws. Which they didn't. And they didn't again at the end of the game, and it almost cost them the championship. Listen, I ran around all happy when UF won and I love watching this team play, but it is what it is: that was UF's worse final 10 minutes of basketball all season, and although they fought hard, they were also a little bit lucky to come away with a win there. IMO.
