Smart returns to LSU lineup for SEC tourney loss

The Gators went up by three points after free throws by Nembhard and Allen, but Reid connected on another triple to tie the game 73-73 with 14 seconds remaining.

The ball didn't touch the rim. Florida's inability to defend inside was a constant theme out of the gates as LSU had 26 points in the paint in the first half. The Gators eliminated the top seed in this tournament Friday with a 76-73 quarterfinal upset of No. 9 LSU. "In my head I was thinking what Coach White said: Play off two feet". They did a good job of executing on the offensive end. Passed it to Andrew and he hit a big shot. "I've thought that the whole season, but I think we showed it tonight".

Florida started slowly and LSU pounded the Gators inside to lead by 10 at the half.

The Tigers propelled themselves to an 11-4 run to stretch their lead to 13 points, but UF did not let the game get out of hand and closed the first half on a good note. On the flip side, LSU's clip dropped to 42.4 percent. LSU is one of the best teams in the country.

"Now, are we an NCAA Tournament team today?" This one was a 3-point difference thanks to a last-second bucket. And the the two games between the schools in the regular season both went to overtime.

All five of Florida's starters scored in double figures. It went in and LSU was out.

The All-SEC first teamer tried to save some clock, but Florida's Jalen Hudson almost snatched the ball away. Reid drained a 3-pointer to tie the score at 73.

With 3:45 to go, Benford was incensed.

Auburn plays Florida in an SEC semifinal Saturday. "I was confused by that". The officials ruled that the shot counted, which caused an eruption from Benford, who was hit with the technical.

So on that possession, Florida had a chance for a 7-point swing. And all of a sudden Florida went from down by three to up by three.

LSU held a three-point advantage over UF with just under four minutes to play, but Johnson drilled a triple to tie the game up.

Waters added: "That was unfortunate. We didn't do enough early in the year to put ourselves in that situation".

Smart sat out the regular-season finale against Vanderbilt last Saturday while the school and NCAA investigated comments made by suspended LSU coach Will Wade on a 2017 Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretap that was leaked to the media. Wade remains suspended by the school indefinitely after was caught on wiretap making an offer to former Adidas consultant Christian Dawkins for the freshman guard Javonte Smart's commitment. That player is believed to be Smart. Chris Silva led SC with 27 points and 11 rebounds, while Felipe Haase and Tre Campbell each added 12 points.

"Coach Will Wade has yet to deny any wrongdoing to us or publicly". "Obviously we wanted him here".
