KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Grant Williams bounced back from one of his worst performances of the season and helped 19th-ranked Tennessee damage Florida's NCAA Tournament hopes.
Williams scored 23 points and Tennessee beat Florida 62-57 on Wednesday night to hand the Gators their third consecutive loss. Williams' big night came four nights after he had a season-low five points in a 73-62 loss at Georgia.
"At Georgia, I was kind of being passive and also I was kind of playing slow," Williams said. "I wasn't playing with pace like I normally do and I wasn't being aggressive. Tonight I was just saying I was going to get the ball where I wanted to get it and put the ball in the basket."
