Watch: Florida’s Chris Chiozza steals a win over Missouri

New, comments

One more shining moment.

NCAA Basketball: Florida at Missouri Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

Florida Gators guard Chris Chiozza has been clutch for his whole career. And since authoring one of the greatest moments in program history with a running buzzer-beater to win a Sweet Sixteen game last March, he has only burnished his credentials as a star who shines brightest when the lights are at their most glaring.

On Saturday against Missouri, he may have one-upped even himself.

Just watch.

And listen, too.

With the seconds ticking down in Columbia, and Missouri holding for the last shot in a 75-75 game, Chiozza diagnosed and destroyed Missouri’s final play — designed to get a three-point look for a red-hot Jordan Barnett — to get a steal and a coast-to-coast layup on the last play of the game, and secure — steal, really — a 77-75 win for Florida.

Chiozza would finish the game with 13 points, all in the second half, six assists — and just the one fateful steal.

And Florida is now 3-0 in SEC play.
