There was a great environment at the O-Dome as I called the Kansas-Florida game Tuesday night. The Rowdy Reptiles were pumped up as the Gators extended their home win streak to 21 games.
It was a good win for Billy Donovan’s team and the zone defense really bothered the Jayhawks. Turnovers were a major story in the game as Kansas had 24 in the loss.
Wiggins showed why he is a big-time player with 26 points and 11 rebounds. He is surrounded by a number of experienced players, and that is a factor.
Bill Self could not be happy with a 21-0 Gator run in the first half to break the game open. Self also looked unhappy over the Jayhawk rebounding effort in the first half.
Kansas has three losses this season; the last time it lost three games this early was back in 2006. Self will get his youngsters to right the ship. Florida showed up with more healthy bodies as Scottie Wilbekin and Kasey Hill played, with Wilbekin making a number of key shots.
