Florida Gulf Coast, the only 15 seed to get to the Sweet 16, waves hello. In other words, don't count your chickens....But yes, I'd much rather face Oral Roberts coming off the high of beating Ohio State versus TOSU.
Bring it on!!
Gonna have to guard the 3 point line.
I think they have to play the game first.
And Florida beat that "Dunk City" team too
Oral Roberts did not win today by being a push over.
It will be a fight.
Oral Roberts is on a 6 game winning streak with a lot of momentum, plus we are struggling and might not have Appleby. I think UF is the better team, but let's remain humble and not look past Oral Roberts. It will be a tough and close game.
Don't we all.....
We will and should be favored, but they are a bad matchup for us. Everything that has hurt us all year, they have. Ability to control pace, don’t turn it over,a guard that can break down the defense through penetration, and good three point shooting.
Long long way from a done deal.
That's what Ohio St thought.... never underestimate your opponent.
You mean, the opposite of what we did today?
Not going to hit you with dislike bacon, but I do not approve of this thread title.
ORU only shot 31% from 3, but took 35 of them in the game! That's half their shots! Need to run them off the line, and then rebound. ORU is also the best free throw shooting team in the nation, so can't foul them. It's not going to be an easy game, even if OR is a 15 seed. They aren't afraid, and are having fun.
Going to be a tough matchup. Scottie will have to put the clamps on #3. I expect Casleton to eat and I could see Jitoboh getting 10-12 minutes and eat a bit too.
Oh man, we ain’t good at that. Hopefully we don’t double down low.
I just hope that this match-up ends up being a more favorable one than the Gators would have had against OSU.
ORU got out rebounded and had lower FG% but shot better from 3 and had less turnovers than OSU.
I know the Gators are averaging 15 turnovers a game but if they could cut those down, it would really help their chances against ORU (and defend the 3 point line of course).
I hope Appleby can mask up and play
Isn't the Oral Roberts game in the Round of 32?
Great win by the Gators, today!!
