It's bad enough to lose a rivalry game. It's worse when you lose the game on your own mistake.
Which is exactly what happened Tuesday night in the FSU vs. Florida game in Tallahassee.
Here's the set-up: Game tied at 63 with just over 2 seconds left in the hard fought game. Florida State throws the ball in. Devon Brookert is forced by the defense to throw up a 3-pointer from deep in the right corner.
Brandon's shot is short and Gators forward Jacob Kurtz goes up to knock the ball away from the hoop.
One problem--Kurtz didn't do a very good job of knocking the ball away. With just 0.4 seconds left, his soft tip hits the rim and goes in. Basket counts---For the Seminoles.
The stunned Gators just shake their collective heads while the FSU faithful stare at the play for a second before they realize what happened and start celebrating the crazy win.
