Sometimes all it takes is a little creativity to give the audience what it wants.

TV regulations prevented WCJB, the ABC affiliate in Gainesville, Fla., from airing highlights of No. 1 Florida's 62-52 victory over No. 11 Dayton on Saturday. However, the station still wanted fans to be able to see how the game played out.

Thus, the crew suited up to recreate the game's biggest moments. Even if nobody cut down the nets in this highlight reel, give the crew credit for getting creative.
