A total of 57 Gator Country exclusive photos from the Gators’ 63-47 win against the Auburn Tigers on Tuesday night in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.
Florida bounced back from back-to-back losses at Kentucky and Tennessee with road wins at Alabama and Arkansas, playing some of its best basketball of the year last week.
Early this week, coach Billy Donovan reiterated that just because the Gators were coming off a terrific game, it didn’t mean they would continue playing well on Tuesday night against the Tigers. His comments were almost prophetic.
Twelve first-half turnovers and a sloppy start to the game left Florida (22-6, 10-3 SEC) trailing 30-27 at the half against Auburn (14-13, 4-9 SEC).
“Coach was mad as I don’t know what,” freshman guard Brad Beal said. “He said words we can’t even describe at halftime. It was real frustrating in the first half, we weren’t playing well at both ends of the floor. The focus just wasn’t there.”
