Florida G Teddy Dupay |
12 pts., 2-4 3-pointers, 4-6 FTs
Turning point came with 4:59 left when his 3-point play tied the game at 74-74 and drew Carlos Boozer's fifth foul.
Young Florida showed tremendous poise by coming back from multiple deficits after leading by as many as eight. Duke's Shane Battier was tremendous, but Jason Williams' 6-for-20 night proved costly.

Oklahoma SF Desmond Mason |
17 pts., 38 min., 5-6 FTs
Sank the 3-pointer that put OSU up for good with midway through the second half.
Despite Shaheen Holloway's absence and a horrid 7-for-33 night from 3-point range, Seton Hall was alive until the buzzer thanks mostly to its relentless efforts on the boards.
