    Two Ks, Killer D Pace Gators Past Hogs
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Florida, the team, was not playing well. Neither was KeVaughn Allen, the Gators' leading scorer. Enter Arkansas, which was been fodder for the latter for four seasons, and after Thursday's win in second-round action of the Southeastern Conference Tournament just may turn out to be a 2019 elixir for the former.

    Think about it.

    The Gators were struggling back in January when they went to Fayetteville early in the SEC campaign and stole a big one on the road against the Razorbacks; one they absolutely had to have at the time. Then came Thursday. UF had lost three straight and were one defeat from abandoning all hope for an NCAA Tournament at-large berth, but righted itself by coming alive in the second half on the way to a 66-50 victory at Bridgestone Arena.

    "I'm not sure it has as much to do with the matchup as it [does] leading into both games with our mentality [and] where we were in the context of the season," UF coach Mike White.

    Another nugget: "Johnson was the first Florida freshman to tally a double-double in the SEC Tournament since Donnell Harvey got 11 points and 12 rebounds in a win over Ole Miss in 2000."

    Keyontae played like a veteran. Was helping bring up the ball,playing defense, rebounding, threes which kept us in the game and thunderous drives.
