Storrs, CT (SportsNetwork.com) – Shabazz Napier scored 26 points and hit the
game-winning basket at the buzzer, keeping Connecticut unbeaten with a
thrilling 65-64 victory over Florida in a battle between top-15 teams at
Gampel Pavilion. After Michael Frazier put the Gators up by one with a
layup with 19 seconds left, the Huskies set up for the final shot
following a Florida timeout. Napier threw up an off-balance shot from near
the foul line that badly missed its mark, but the rebound caromed straight
back to the senior guard and his second attempt was right on target as time
expired. DeAndre Daniels added 14 points and seven rebounds for No. 12
Connecticut (8-0), which hung around with the more physical Gators by
virtue of an 11-for-24 success rate from 3-point range. Casey Prather paced
15th-ranked Florida (6-2) with 19 points and seven rebounds. Patric
Young finished with 17 points in the loss, while Scottie Wilbekin had 15
before rolling his right ankle with 3:01 remaining.

Final Score: (17) Iowa State 99, Auburn 70
