  • Men's Basketball Bounced from SEC Tournament, 76-73

Auburn's Jared Harper didn't attempt a single free throw in the first half.

Without its suspended coach Will Wade, but with the return of guard Javonte Smart, the SEC regular-season champions couldn't hold off Florida and lost to the Gators 76-73 in the quarterfinal round of the conference tournament on Friday at Bridgestone Arena.

"It definitely shifts the momentum and it slows the game down, which is much better for them at the pace they play", LSU junior guard Skylar Mays said of that sequence. "I kind of put pressure on myself on being able to perform for my team". "I give (Florida coach) Mike (White) and his group credit".

The fifth-seeded TIgers (24-9) carry a six-game winning streak into a Saturday semifinal against No. 8 seed Florida (19-14).

The game went back and forth down the stretch, and was tied 73-all with time quickly winding down.

The Gators hit their stride in the second half, shooting almost 60 percent overall and 46 percent from the 3-point line. That surpasses the record that had been held by Arkansas, which made 361 during its drive to an NCAA Tournament runner-up finish in 1995.

Mays said playing without Wade has been a challenge, but he offered complimentary remarks of the job assistants Greg Heiar, Bill Armstrong and Benford have done to prepare the team for games.

While Auburn tries to improve its NCAA Tournament seeding, SC (16-16) waits to see whether it merits an NIT invitation, even though its coach believes his team's capable of much more.

LSU sits at 26-6 with the loss after clinching the SEC regular season title.

"Now, are we an NCAA Tournament team today? I say yes", SC coach Frank Martin said. The Tigers are in line for a top seed in the NCAA Tournament. Me saying that doesn't mean we belong. "As a university and employer, we need to hear our employee say, 'I didn't do anything wrong, ' or explain the circumstances or admit he did do something wrong. It wasn't a situation that we obviously wanted to be in, but in the moment it is what it is".

On Saturday, UF will take on the victor of Auburn-South Carolina, which is now underway. Gets better and better the latter part of his senior year.

The Tigers came out strong, shooting 53 percent from the floor in the first 20 minutes and ran to a 13-point lead in the first half. Harper had six assists and six rebounds to go along with his 27 points. "When you're an interim coach you're not going to get the calls". "He makes it look easy". Auburn beat Florida 76-62 at home on February 9 in their lone regular-season matchup. Florida was unable to get closer than eight points for the duration of the half. Wiley scored two points in only three minutes.

Florida's Johnson had just knocked down a 3-pointer to tie it with just under four minutes to play.

SC waits to learn whether it gets an NIT invitation.
