GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Tim Williams scored 21 points, DeAndre
Hersey had a putback with 1.8 seconds remaining and South Alabama
stunned No. 18 Florida 67-66 on Tuesday night.
Williams drove through the lane in the closing seconds, but his
shot clanged off the rim. Florida failed to block out Hersey, who
grabbed the rebound and put it back up for the game winner.
The Gators had one final chance, but Erving Walker's shots from
halfcourt hit the back of the rim and the Jaguars (9-4) started to
celebrate. Florida (8-3) has lost three straight and could fall
from the rankings.
Florida rallied from a seven-point deficit in the second half
and had the lead and the ball with less than a minute to play. But
Chandler Parsons, who finished 1 of 8 from the field, misfired on a
wild runner in the lane with 18 seconds remaining.
