Florida unable to overcome poor first half performance: Florida only scored 19 points in the first half against Vanderbilt, going 7-for-33 from the floor. The Gators attempted a comeback, and surpassed their first half scoring output in just over 10 minutes in the second half, but ended up falling to the Commodores by one point.
