(1) Florida Edges Vanderbilt to Clinch at Least a Share of SEC Title

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Dorian Finney-Smith had 19 points and nine rebounds to help top-ranked Florida nip Vanderbilt 57-54 on Tuesday, giving the Gators at least a share of the Southeastern Conference title for the second straight season.

While Florida won, Vanderbilt didn't make it easy. Down 12 with 12:35 left in the game, the Commodores went on a 12-3 run to close within three with 7:47 remaining. It was a back-and-forth affair from there, and Vanderbilt's Kyle Fuller had a chance to send the game to overtime, but just missed the tying 3-pointer with four seconds left.

Florida (26-2, 15-0, SEC) has now won 20-straight games and can clinch sole possession of the SEC title on Saturday when they play LSU.

Dai-Jon Parker had 11 points, six boards, three assists and a steal for Vanderbilt (15-12, 7-8, SEC), who played with only seven healthy scholarship players.
