GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Of all the things Florida wanted to accomplish this season, playing better in close games was high on the list.

It was right up there behind winning the Southeastern Conference and advancing to the Final Four.

The sixth-ranked Gators knew finding success in tight games would be key to their loftiest goals. So far, it has them poised for big things in 2014.

Florida (15-2, 4-0 SEC) is 7-2 in games decided by single digits this season and 3-1 in games decided by two points or less, a stark contrast to the team's struggles last season.

Florida, which plays at Alabama on Thursday, went 0-6 in games decided by less than 10 points last season and 0-4 in games decided by five points or less.
