After knocking down a three with five minutes left in Florida’s 65-39 beatdown on Virginia, Devin Robinson hit a defender with jabstep that not only knocked the defender down and made him slide almost out of bounds, but represented the knockout punch.
After getting fouled on the ankle-breaking play, Robinson knocked down one of two free throws and went on to finish the game with 14 points (5 for 8 shooting) and 11 boards for the fifth double-double of his career.
As impressive as Robinson’s offense was(with the exception of his 2 for 5 shooting at the charity stripe), it was Florida’s defense that really killed Virginia. They held Virginia to a season-low 17 points in the first half, which included a 21-0 run by the Gators.
