Auburn nearly upsets Florida but has costly missed free-throw, bad foul and turnover in final seconds


Hard to blow a basketball game quite like the way Auburn did during Wednesday’s matchup with No.2 Florida. After No.1 Syracuse was upset by Boston College earlier in the night, it appeared the No.2 team in the country was also going to fall. However, due to a missed-free throw by Chris Denson with just over 20-seconds to play, a terrible intentional foul on the ensuing rebound by Asauhn Dixon-Tatum, and then throwing the inbounds-pass out-of-bounds, Auburn pretty much handed the Gators the SEC win.
