Video: Chris Chiozza converts steal into layup to lift Florida over Missouri

In News by Blake Lovell

Florida guard Chris Chiozza stole the ball with just seconds remaining and score the game-winning layup as time expired to give the Gators a road win at Missouri.

After Jalen Hudson hit two of three free throws to tie the game at 75 all, Missouri head coach Cuonzo Martin called a timeout with 17 seconds remaining to give the Tigers a shot at the win.

Unfortunately, Chiozza darted in front of a pass and raced down court to lay it in before the clock reached zero:

The win helped Florida improve to 3-0 in SEC play, with the Gators set to host Mississippi State won Wednesday.

Missouri fell to 1-1 in the conference after opening with a win at South Carolina earlier in the week.
