INDIANAPOLIS – Todd Golden already had blown a gasket over one officiating-related incident, a reaction that got the Florida coach a technical foul late in the No. 7-seeded Gators' matchup against 12-seed Colorado in Thursday's opening-round of the NCAA South Region.

But about 40 minutes or so after watching Buffaloes guard KJ Simpson use a left forearm to nudge UF defender Zyon Pullin off balance, then rise up to sink a baseline jumper with just two seconds remaining to give the Buffaloes a pulsating 102-100 victory at Gainbridge Fieldhouse, Golden's frustration gave way to sarcasm.

"I thought ZP did his job. Stayed in legal position," Golden said of the game-deciding sequence. "Stayed between the ball and the basket and – somehow – Simpson just created about seven feet of separation to get that shot off."
