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.

And in their opener against No. 16 seed Albany, they looked anything but the part.

The Great Danes led until late in the first half, tied the game up at 39 with less than 15 minutes left and were not out of contention until the final minutes, losing 67-55, despite the fact that their two leading scorers combined for just nine points on 2-for-18 shooting.

Safe to say, Billy Donovan was not happy with the performance.

“To be honest with you, I’m a little bit baffled with our team right now. I really am,” he said during the postgame interview.

What was wrong?

Frankly, it looked like the Gators expected to walk into the gym…
