    FLORIDA vs No. 10 MICHIGAN


    When: Saturday, 5:15 p.m. (EST)
    Where: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa

    STAKES (The Setup)
    [​IMG]
    Freshman Andrew Nembhard (center) and the Gators huddle up during Thursday's opening-round win in the NCAA West Region at Des Moines, Iowa.
    No. 10-seed Florida and No. 2-seed Michigan, the national runner-up a year ago, will play Saturday with the winner advancing to the Sweet 16. ... The Gators got here by upsetting seventh-seed and 14th-ranked Nevada, 70-61, in a game they led by 18 in the second half, only to see the Wolf Pack storm back and three times cut the margin to two in the final five-plus minutes. UF surprised Nevada by going to a 1-3-1 zone defense over the final two minutes and held the Pack scoreless the rest of the way. ... The Wolverines, ranked 10th after finishing third in the Big Ten and falling to rival Michigan State in the conference tournament final, smashed 15th-seeded Montana, 74-55, in the second West Region game Thursday night. Michigan, which lost to Villanova in the 2018 national-title game, took a 19-6 lead, shot 52 percent in the first half, got a game-high 22 points from guard Charles Matthews and were never tested by the overmatched Grizzlies. ... UF and Michigan will play for just the fourth time, including the second time in the NCAA Tournament. When last on the floor together, the fourth-seeded Wolverines destroyed the third-seeded Gators, 79-59, in the 2013 South Region title game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Guard Nick Stauskas hit seven of eight shots, including all six 3-balls, on the way to 22 points, while forward Mitch McGarry had 15 points and eight rebounds. UF was never in the game, falling behind 20-4, as U-M shot 51 percent in the first half and made seven of 11 treys. The Gators got 13 points from guard Kenny Boynton in his final game, plus 13 points and seven rebounds off the bench from forward Will Yeguete. ... UF is 44-17 all-time in 20 NCAA tournaments, including 5-2 under Coach Mike White. Michigan is 60-27 in 29 NCAA appearances, with a national title in 1989.

    All but one starter averages 5 rebounds. Going to have to gang rebound to have a chance.

    But according to some they are a bad rebounding team because their big guys total is not as high as you'd expect....so we'll see

    Joe Osborne of Odds Shark: Of the 13 #2 seeds to win six or fewer games over their final 10 contests before the tournament since 1997, nine of them were eliminated in the second round. Both Michigan and Tennessee are 6-4 in their last 10.

    We’ve had a quite few games where we’ve found ourselves down by a score of 10-2 or something similar. We have to score early for confidence.

    Pulling into Twin Peaks - Davie for another round of gator Basketball and several dirty blondes.

    Gators are undefeated so far when I come here to view a game.

    Wearing the same shirt, of course, too from Thursday night....

    Doing what I gotta do to help the team to a major upset!

    I hope you will let us know if there's anything we can do, Oklahoma.

    He already knows this - but please give him our fondest regards.

    TIA!
