Keyontae Johnson thought he’d forced overtime with a layup as time expired. But officials determined on video review that the half-second on the clock when the ball was put in play ran out before the ball left Johnson’s hand. The Gators have had trouble this year against teams that have physically overwhelmed their perimeter players, but the Bears guards and wings are good players but they’re not physically overwhelming, they’re skill guys. Florida will feel better about their ability to guard them and in order for the Gators to win this game, their defense will need to be active and disruptive.
