Florida skirted by OSU 71-68 thanks to a clutch half-court bomb from guard Tyree Appleby with 0:01 left to play. Having forecasted a close win for Florida, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Guard Phlandrous Fleming Jr. and forward CJ Felder were among the main playmakers for Florida as the former had 19 points and the latter had ten points in addition to five rebounds.
