    Gators’ furious rally overcomes slow start against Bulldogs

    By Edgar Thompson Sentinel
    GAINESVILLE — On a night when Georgia freshman Anthony Edwards was stealing the show, UF sophomore point guard Andrew Nembhard would not be denied. Nembhard scored 14 of the Gators’ final 17 points to fuel a furious second-half rally and ultimately lead his team out of a 22-point hole and to a stunning 81-75 win Wednesday night at the O’Connell Center.

    Edwards, the Bulldogs’ first-year phenom, finished with 32 points — a career-high in SEC play — to help his team build a 52-30 advantage. But a little more than a month after erasing a 21-point deficit to beat Alabama in double-overtime, the Gators put together another scintillating second half to tie the record for biggest comeback in school history.

    UF sophomore Keyontae Johnson and slumping freshman Tre Mann got things started, reviving the Gators and the O’Dome crowd. Mann, a five-star recruit battling a shooting slump all season, hit three 3-pointers, including a pair during a 23-2 run that turned around the game.

    Johnson, who sat out more than 13 minutes of the first half with foul trouble, chipped in 11 points during the surge by coach Mike White’s squad. The Gators (14-8, 6-3) pushed their advantage to 10 points, at 69-59, on a jump shot by Nemhbard. But Georg would not fold, cutting the lead to 73-71 on a 3-point basket by Donnell Gresham Jr.

    A really fun stretch of the game. Edwards hit a 3 to break up our 8-0 run that cut the deficit from 22 points with 16:43 to go (52-30) to 14 points with 15:11 to go. His three made it 55-38 with 14:41 to go. Georgia then went over 7 minutes (7:10) without scoring a FG, and they managed only 2 FT over that stretch as FLORIDA made it a 61-57 game.

    Go GATORS!

    Good point. It may be that Key is the key for this team. He carried us for a while and then everyone started to raised their game.
