Florida loses after player tips ball into own basket
Wednesday December 31st, 2014

Florida suffered a heartbreaking loss to rival Florida State on Tuesday when Gators forward Jake Kurtz inadvertently tipped the ball into his own basket at the buzzer. 

Seminoles guard Devon Bookert's shot fell short, but the ball caromed off Kurtz's hands as he attempted to secure the rebound.

The loss dropped the Gators to 7-5 on the year, while FSU improved to 8-5. 

Kurtz led the team with eight rebounds, but was unable to secure a ninth to send the game to overtime.
