Gators hoops not ready to end its season in the Sweet 16

Against Florida, Virginia shot under 30 percent from the floor, and just six percent from three. Every team feels like it has a chance to get to the Final Four after getting to the regional semifinals.

The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team has won its first two NCAA tournament games despite dealing with major foul trouble. The Badgers convincingly beat Virginia Tech 84-74 in the first round and then knocked off No. 1 overall seed Villanova 65-62. Teams usually don't advance this far if they're not.

Chris Chiozza delivered a punch to the collective gut of the Wisconsin Badgers on Friday night in Madison Square Garden. Wisconsin doesn't make you cue up Luther Vandross' "One Shining Moment" as much as Bob Marley's "Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight!"

Florida advanced to face SC on Sunday afternoon with a trip to the Final Four on the line. They've won more tournament games over that span than Kentucky (12), North Carolina (10) and Duke (9).

At one point, the Gators engineered a 21 point turnaround, from 11 down to 10 points ahead. The forward dominated on the defensive boards against UVA with 11 rebounds. Such a ridiculous play to finish what was a fantastic college basketball game.

Allen was Florida's best scorer during the regular season but hadn't done a whole lot in the tournament.

Stroman, who could have chosen to pitch for Puerto Rico , gave up his only hit to the first batter he faced in the seventh inning. Sugano learned he would start the semifinal while he was waiting at Narita Airport for the team's flight to the United States.

That being said, Wisconsin's experience will help propel the Badgers to a close victory over Florida. I think the Wolverines are moving on but their magic may be running out. "That sometimes happens when you have so many young guys".

"Yes, it kind of let us know we could play with anybody", Koenig said during Thursday's media event with the four Sweet 16 teams.

The Sweet 16 is established, and while there were some mild surprises, the overwhelming majority of trends we saw continued into this year's NCAA tournament. "... We played really well, made some plays down the stretch and were able to beat obviously a very, very good team". Hill and the Gators frustrated Virginia into one of its worst shooting performances of the season, limiting the Cavaliers to 29.6 percent field-goal shooting and a season-low offensive output.

Long-range shooting can run hot and cold, which adds an extra layer of unpredictability to the already volatile world of March Madness, which can lead to an unlikely foursome at the Garden this week: Florida, Baylor and SC with Wisconsin.

Wisconsin built a lead of as much as five points in overtime, but Florida tied it on a driving layup by Chiozza with 24 seconds left in overtime that was set up by a Canyon Barry block.
