STUNNER: Florida downs LSU in Tigers' first game of SEC tourney

March 15, 2019 - 2:29 pm

(WWL.com) -- Florida hit a three-pointer with 1.2 seconds left as the Gators upset the LSU Tigers 76-73 in the SEC  Tournament quarterfinals. 

Naz Reid had 26 in a losing effort. Javonte Smart was cleared to play and had 13 points, but Tremont Waters and Skyler Mays combined to scored just 15 points. There was also a crucial technical foul called against assistant coach Tony Benford with just over three minutes left.  

Head Coach Will Wade was not there as he remains suspended for failing to discuss with university officials a recorded conversation purportedly between him and a recruiting handler. 

LSU now awaits its seeding in the NCAA Tournament.
