The Gators (1-1) led 105-102 through 11 events, but were outscored 12-7 in the 200-meter breaststroke and 11-6 in the 400-meter freestyle relay by the Wolverines (2-0) to close the meet.

Lochte won the 400-meter freestyle with an NCAA provisional time of 4:01.20 and also touched the wall first in the 200-meter individual medley (2:07.84).

Junior Gabriel Mangabeira (Piratininga, Brazil) captured the other individual event for the Gators, taking first in the 50-meter freestyle with a time of 24.12. Mangabeira also placed second in the 100-meter freestyle (52.27).

Florida won the opening event of the meet as senior Chris Kellam (Mt. Juliet, Tenn.), freshman Bill Mrazek (Tallahassee, Fla.), Mangabeira and senior Scott Schultz (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) won the 400-meter medley relay by nearly three seconds with a time of 3:55.29.
