It’s March, which means teams are fighting for their (hoops) lives with respect to the NCAA Tournament.
Florida entered Friday’s game against LSU on the cusp of missing the tournament, but thanks to a buzzer-beater by Andrew Nembhard, the Gators likely played their way into the field of 64.
Florida held a 73-70 lead before LSU’s Naz Reid tied it with a huge three with 13 seconds left. Then, Nembhard played hero for the Gators.
Here’s Nembhard’s buzzer-beater if you haven’t seen it:
