AP Game Recap

SUNRISE, Fla. -- With his Florida Gators leading by eight points at halftime, coach Billy Donovan sensed trouble.

He was right. No. 13 Florida stumbled through the second half and lost to Richmond 56-53 Saturday night in the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic.

"I saw it coming," Donovan said.

The game began to turn in the final minute of the first half after Florida took a 32-19 lead. Richmond scored five quick points before halftime, and Donovan could tell his Gators were going flat.

"You see the energy, the passion, the enthusiasm kind of coming out of them," he said. "I can get them physically ready to play, but they've got to understand every game is 40 minutes."

The Gators (8-2), beaten by No.
