SEC Tournament: Florida vs

SEC Tournament: Florida vs

SC couldn't keep him off the foul line the rest of the game. After being fed the ball by Johnson at the top of the arc, Nembhard connected on a three-pointer to give Florida the 76-73 victory.

But he also pointed out how Saint Mary's upset Gonzaga in the West Coast Conference tournament title game, adding that the Tigers handled the Gaels on a neutral count back in December. With all the distractions it was hard to predict how the Tigers were going to play. "I'm a leader for this team, so if I want to win, I have to make game-winning plays and just lead my team".

LSU guard Javonte Smart returned to the Tigers' SEC tournament opener against Florida on Friday, scoring 13 points off the bench in a 76-73 loss.

We've crossed over into the realm of legendary, history-making stuff now, and Auburn doesn't even yet know where it's playing in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. However, Arkansas won the last time they met at the SEC Tournament, an 80-72 victory previous year. Allen and Hayes put the Gators up 66-63, which was followed by a pair of free throws and another basket in the paint by the Tigers.

While Auburn tries to improve its NCAA Tournament seeding, SC (16-16) waits to see whether it merits an NIT invitation, even though its coach believes his team's capable of much more.

The easiest way for the Gators to eliminate all doubt is to take the SEC's automatic bid for themselves, and the next step in that process would be topping Auburn in the conference's first semifinal matchup. We heard stuff today.

"Those are good shots", Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said, "and don't think that Jared's not in the gym all the time". Replays show Brown appeared to grab at Nembhard's left arm, but the guard said he felt he got the ball. Me saying that doesn't mean we belong. "He's worked his butt off and deserves it. Jalen and KeVaughn stepped up for us as well.Naz Reid is a handful, to complement the rest of their guys, Tremont Waters.We did just enough to beat a very good team".

SC beat Auburn 80-77 in the regular season thanks to a career-high 32 points from Silva.

Auburn is the 5 seed this week and the Tigers have won six straight, including wins over Missouri and SC in this tournament.

Florida: The Gators' 3-point shooting woes, which contributed to their three-game skid to end the regular season, surfaced again.

After Harper's made shot, Florida scored a quick layup by Jalen Hudson. Offensively, Florida is putting up 68.5 points per game while shooting 42.3 percent as a team.

Although they were taking on the top-seeded Tigers, UF had confidence against LSU after taking them to overtimes in both their regular season matchups, winning one of those games. Florida needs to win with defense, but I think that will be a challenge against Auburn.

A highly touted freshman who coach Mike White plugged into his starting lineup from the moment he stepped foot on campus, Nembhard also had six assists without a turnover in 37 minutes.

SC outscored Auburn by seven points when Silva was on the floor.

Auburn's Austin Wiley made a brief return to action Friday after missing five games with a lower right leg injury.

It was a heat-check three-pointer from no-man's land with 12 seconds to go, and Harper just drilled it cold.
