Gators Use 21-0 Run to Knock off Kansas 67-61

By Darek Sharp / 620wdae.com

A stunning 21-0 point run sent the Florida Gators on their way to a 67-61 over No. 13 Kansas Tuesday in Gainesville.

Kansas was up 10-3 before the stretch. The Jayhawks committed as many turnovers in the first half (16) as they had all season.

Dorian Finney-Smith had four 3's including one that squashed an early KU uprising in the second half. He scored 15 while Scottie Wilbekin had a career game with 18 points.

It was Florida's last action since losing on a shot at the buzzer to UConn last week. The 19th-ranked Gators are 7-2 on the season.

Florida missed a dunk that would have put up 20 in the first half, and a couple of missed free throws helped Kansas trim the margin to 15 at intermission. It got closer in the final minutes thanks to Andrew Wiggins, the only Jayhawk in double figures with 26 points.

Kansas got within five but that was all.
