SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Richmond rallied from a 13-point first-half
deficit, and Kevin Anderson made four free throws in the final 5.4
seconds to upset No. 13 Florida 56-53 Saturday night in the Orange
Bowl Basketball Classic.
The Gators shot 7 for 27 in the second half (26 percent),
including 1 for 9 from 3-point range. They led for the last time at
David Gonzalvez's 3-pointer with 1:34 left put Richmond ahead
52-49. Anderson sank both ends of a one-and-one for a 54-53 lead,
and after Erving Walker made a 3-point, Anderson made two more free
throws with 0.9 seconds remaining.
Gonzalvez scored 16 points for the Spiders (8-3), who beat a
Southeastern Conference team for the second time this season. They
defeated Mississippi State on Nov. 27.
The Gators (8-2) lost their second game in a row. They were
beaten by No. 5 Syracuse last week.
