Lol I just saw that . Well done Stu . I see what you did there. As you know I can put my foot in my mouth . But that’s it .
Let's hope. If nothing else it shows them it can be done if they ever find themselves down big again. Also a great bonding moment for the team.
Aggressive Nembhard, White key Gators in unlikely second-half rally
Gvl Sun By Graham Hall

It wouldn’t be a stretch to say Andrew Nembhard has hit his stride at the right time.
The sophomore point guard scored a career-high 25 points in Florida’s 104-98 double-overtime win Saturday over Alabama while making several key plays down the stretch.
Nembhard scored seven of his points in extra periods of play, and either scored or assisted on 18 of Florida’s 51 second-half points, as the Gators pulled off the largest comeback in program history.
Factor in Nembhard’s career-best 13 assists in UF’s previous game, a 39-point win over Long Beach State, and the implication is that the native of Aurora, Canada, may be the key to UF’s ongoing offensive improvement.
“Just being more aggressive, knowing that I need to make plays for my team to win,” Nembhard said. “I didn’t do that in the first half, so I tried to come out more aggressive and more confident.”
After a first half that saw the Gators fall into a 21-point hole, only to cut the deficit to 14 just before halftime, UF appeared to utilize more sets featuring a dribble hand-off with Nembhard and Kerry Blackshear Jr., resulting in either an open lane for the former or a jumper for the latter. While Alabama kept hitting shots of its own, UF stuck with what kept working on the other end, and eventually the unlikely outcome had been secured.
