Michael Frazier’s record-breaking season has been filled with huge games shooting the ball, setting a Florida record for 3-pointers with 117 and with nine games of at least five baskets behind the arc.

But one of the games he’d probably like to forget came against this Saturday’s Final Four opponent UConn (30-8), making just one of three shots behind the arc and finishing with seven points in a 65-64 loss on Dec. 2 — the last time the Gators (36-2) lost a game. Florida has a 30-game winning streak.

“They basically tried to take me out of the game. They had a guy just play me the whole time, not leave me,” he said.

If Connecticut plans a similar strategy this time around, though, and Frazier has a plan.

“If a team wants to do that, then it opens up driving lanes,” said Frazier, second on the team with a 13.4 average. “It opens up other things for my teammates, so I’m still adding value even if they won’t allow me to shoot the ball.”

While Shabazz Napier’s basket at the buzzer won the game, Frazier said it wasn’t the only reason the Gators lost.

“That’s what really sticks out in my mind, but I know there were other things in the game that we didn’t do very well,” Frazier said. “So it wasn’t just that one play that helped us lose the game. There were plenty of things.

“We didn’t finish the (final) possession with a rebound. It’s not the first shot that beats you, it’s the second shot. We definitely saw that in that game. I think we’ve learned from it and moved on.”

Frazier was 38 of 72 behind the arc in the month of March (52.8 percent). There’s no question a few clutch shots from him at the right moment can go a long way in breaking open a tense game.

One characteristic that has stood out is his ability to stay relaxed, no matter how tense the games get. In fact, he seems to thrive when Florida needs him the most.

“I try not to get too high,” he said. “I try not to get too low. Just try to stay consistent. The way that I really feel is that we haven’t really accomplished our goal yet. We’ve just accomplished a minor goal along the way. I’m definitely happy that we’re at the point we’re at now. It’s a great opportunity, a great experience.

“But I think our team is just enjoying the process. You can’t really sit back and look at it now, because we still have more to go. So, I would say after I’m done playing, maybe I look back and say, ‘Wow, this was a great time in my life.’ But I’m not really concerned about that right now. I’m trying to keep advancing.”
