A lot has been made over Saturday’s win for Florida basketball over Alabama.
But, the fact of the matter is the double-overtime thriller should have never happened in the first place.
The Gators (9-4, 1-0 SEC) played perhaps its worst half of the season in the first against the Crimson Tide — shooting a putrid 16.7% from 3-point range and just 36% from the field overall.
Additionally, Florida basketball was outrebounded by Alabama, 22-18 and the Gators coughed the ball up nine times en route to spotting the Crimson Tide a 14-point halftime lead.
That’s not even the worst of it.
