The Gators were determined not to let Stefan Moody beat them. He didn’t, but Jarvis Summers did.
Summers hit two free throws with 3.5 seconds left, and Florida, though getting into the lane at the buzzer, didn’t get a bucket or a foul.
Moody was held to six points on 2-for-10 shooting. He was 0-for-5 from 3-point range. Summers had 16 points on 5-for-11 shooting.
Here’s Andy Kennedy:
As Kennedy mentions in the video, this win had a lot of contributions from a lot of different people.
Snoop White played well, which normally happens in an Ole Miss win, but Anthony Perez got into an SEC game for only the second time this year. He was a vital part of the rotation last year but this year has drifted off the reservation. He had six points, five rebounds and an assist in 12 minutes.
Terence Smith was also impressive, knocking down some big 3-pointers, two of them when Ole Miss stormed back from six down with a 13-0 run in the second half.
Summers was glad to get a chance to take an approach different from the Kentucky game when he settled for a jump shot at the end of regulation with the game on the line.
More tomorrow in Day After Observations.
