Top Ranked Florida Gators Down UCLA to Enter Elite Eight

The Florida Gators downed the UCLA Bruins by a score of  79-68 in the NCAA Tournament South Region semifinals at the FedEx Forum that put the Gators in very familiar territory, the Elite Eight.   The Gators (35-2), winners of 29 in a row, advanced to the South Region championship game Saturday where they’ll face 11th-seeded tournament darling Dayton (26-10) at 6:09 p.m., with the winner heading to the Final Four in Arlington, Texas next week. For UF and its incomparable senior class — which won for a school-record 118th time Thursday — the date with the Flyers will provide an opportunity to erase painful memories of Elite Eight losses in each of the last three seasons.
