This is starting to play out exactly like last year’s first round matchup, as the Florida Gators and the BYU Cougars are tied at 63 with only 4:56 left to go in this Sweet 16 matchup.
Florida has had a balanced scoring load with 4 players in double figures lead by Alex Tyus’ 14 points, 10 rebound effort and a Vernon Macklin with 9 points. Jimmer Fredette has been bothered by a calf injury in the 2nd half, but has carried BYU with 28 points. Jackson Emery and Noah Hartstock each have 9 points, but Fredette is the 1st through 3rd option right now for the Cougars.
Florida has done a good job getting its post players involved in the 2nd half, and the Gator bigs are starting to control the paint down low. Florida however has to keep a man on Jimmer as soon as he crosses the half court line. His 3-pointer to tie the game was from around 30 feet out.
We hope you are excited as Gus Johnson is for this wild finish.
