Four starters scored double figures, led by Ron Baker’s 15 points. Three players garnered four assists a piece. Wichita State is one win away from finishing the regular season undefeated. How many more wins do they need to secure a No. 1 seed?
Game of the Day
The Florida Gator looked to continue their dominance over the SEC and they pulled out a three point victory over Vanderbilt. While the game seemed to be in hand most of the night, the Commodores had a chance to tie it with a three at the buzzer. The shot clanked off the backboard and the game was over after an attempted put back.
Dorian Finney-Smith came off the bench to pour in 19 points to lead the Gators. He was also one rebound from a double-double.
Vanderbilt had a real chance to earn bubble points with a win, but they could never get their offense to fully flourish. The Gators used a press that caused multiple 10-second violations. However, when Vanderbilt got the ball in the front court, they scored at a productive rate.
Florida (26-2, 15-0) are three wins away from attaining a perfect conference record.
