Ouch. The ‘Blades had a chance to clinch a playoff berth Saturday, but failed to show up, getting outshot 39-18 and outscored 5-0 as Wheeling won their second game of a three game mini-series in southwest Florida. Hutchings did not register a shot in the game. Florida will play South Carolina three times at home this week to close the regular season. The ‘Blades remain one point up on South Carolina for fourth in the East, and five points up on ninth place Toledo. Florida had a 30-minute players-only meeting after the game, reported the Naples Daily News.
