The Alabama Crimson Tide played very well and challenge the Florida Gators on Friday, but couldn't come up with the big shots that they needed at the very end. Florida defeated Alabama for the second time this season as they predictably relied on their three-point shooting en route to a 66-63 victory.
Alabama did not have a single lead during the game, but got very close to tying the game in the final seconds. With the Tide trailing by two points in the final minute, JaMychal Green drew a foul on Patric Young and got to the free-throw line with a chance to tie the game. He made the first, but missed the second to preserve Florida's lead. Alabama sent Kenny Boynton to the line and he made both foul shots. Trevor Lacey had an excellent look at a three, but came up just short with his shot at the buzzer.
Green was arguably the best player on the floor, as he led all players in scoring and rebounding with 22 and 10. Alabama Won the battle on the boards and shot 53 percent from the floor, but they turned the ball over 10 times to Florida's five turnovers, while the Gators made 10 three-point shots.
