GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Texas A&M trailed before the opening tip at Florida. It was a scenario neither coach had experienced or even knew was a possibility before Wednesday night. Shortly after final warmups, the Aggies realized managers had left their game jerseys at the team hotel. They double-timed it back to grab them, but officials hit them with an administrative technical foul because the start had to be postponed a few minutes. Florida's Will Richard made the free throw for a 1-0 lead before the opening tip. The Aggies rallied to win for the first time in six trips to Gainesville and gave Buzz Williams a victory in his 500th game as a head coach. This one, though, will be remembered for that pregame point.
