The Gators cruise into the next round
March 18, 2011, 5:27 am
On a day that was full of last second shots and surprising upsets, it was just business as usual for the Florida Gators as they dismantled UC Santa Barbara winning the game 79-51. Florida is a 2 seed in this year’s tournament and Santa Barbara is a 15 seed so the result should be a shock to no one, but the total domination the Gators showed could be a positive sign of things to come. The win marks Florida’s first tournament victory since 2007. They await the UCLA Bruins who defeated Michigan State thursday night to punch their ticket to the next round.
