McKale Center; Tucson, Arizona

Arizona 65, Florida 64

Mark Lyons played the role of hero for the Arizona Wildcats basketball team just hours after the Arizona football team pulled off a miraculous comeback in the New Mexico Bowl

Lyons scored on a fast break after Florida's Kenny Boynton missed a free throw. 

Boynton was silenced all night as he shot two of 10 from the field with just five points. 

Mike Rosario was the best player on the court for Florida with 16 points. 

Lyons' three-pointer with 4:56 left in the game sparked a 7-3 run to end the game for the Wildcats, who move to 8-0 with the win.

Florida (7-1) will most likely drop out of the top 10 on Monday while Arizona could find a way into the top five when the AP rankings are released.
