March Madness 2010:7 BYU - 10 Flordia Game Live Blog***2OT

March Madness 2010 Game Update
7 BYU vs 10 Florida
West Regional

BYU was down early to Florida despite what looked like a good matchup. Fredette was scoring but he wasn't getting the other players involved in the offense in his point guard role. Now Michael Loyd off the bench has gotten involved with 8 points on 2 of 2 from beyond the arc and the score is 29 to 28 BYU. BYU went on a run but Florida inched back and it is 35 to 33 BYU. Loyd has 10 points at the half on 4 of 4 shooting. BYU is starting to pull away in the second half 59 to 49, Fredette has 20 already.
BYU is down now 68 to 71. This has been a really close game in all categories, not sure how Florida is up though with 5 more turnovers in such a closely played game.
BYU and Florida are tied 75 to 75 with .5 seconds left in the game, time for a catch and shoot, no good.
