    KeVaughn Allen said 32 point game v. FSU last season gave him confidence to be aggressive for the rest of the season.

    White said FSU is as long and athletic a defense as the Gators will face all season.

    With the 83-78 loss, Florida coach Mike White drops to 6-8 in his UF tenure in games decided by 5 points or less.

    KeVaughn Allen said of three fouls in first half, he thought two weren't fouls, said he thought he could play with two fouls and not get 3rd

    Mike White on bringing KeVaughn back in with two fouls, said he didn't want to struggle offensively before halftime.

    Senior Kasey Hill was asked to do more offensively with KeVaughn Allen in foul trouble, but it’s never ideal for a starting point guard to have an assist-to-turnover ratio of 3 to 5. Credit Hill, though, for not being afraid to drive inside despite FSU’s size and length around the basket. I felt Hill could have drove in during the closing minutes to try to draw contact and cut into FSU’s 77-74 lead in the closing minutes, but he chose to pull the ball out instead.

  • Gators handle Vols
    Ride red-hot final 20 minutes to fifth consecutive win

    A dash of hot shooting in the second half from sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen and some unexpected contributions allowed the Gators to remain unblemished in SEC play with an 83-70 win over the Volunteers before a sellout crowd of 10,843 at the O'Connell Center.

    Florida (12-3, 3-0 SEC) won its fifth straight in an imperfect game that revealed some flaws. But unlike last Tuesday against Ole Miss, Florida closed strong, outscoring Tennessee 17-7 in the final four minutes.

    “We showed a little more fight and feistiness and mental resolve to not fold,” Florida coach Mike White said. “There's a few games last year, at Tennessee last year being one, where we didn't respond really well to a hard-fought game.”

    Allen scored 16 of his season-high 23 points in the second half and made four 3-pointers in the game's final eight minutes.

    Martin said it's a credit to his bigs and guards for closing out on UF's shooters.

    Florida coach Mike White said KeVaughn Allen still a little sore from cramping issues on Wednesday v Arkansas, "Not sure he's 100 percent."

  • Turning it on when it counts!  Combined 3-21 from the field and 1-13 from 3 so far in the NCAAT.

  • Because all other teams are our adversaries and it hurts for one of our own to join the side of our enemies. Ok, let me put it in terms hogvillians can relate to. It's sorta like if one of your Arkansas relatives left to join the Union army during the Civil War.

    Some did.
