Depending on who comes, stays or goes, Florida could be one of the top contenders next season. Regardless, the Gators will have plenty of offense.
Friday's matchup features No. 7 seed Florida, a team that loves to fire off 3-pointers, against No. 10 Virginia, a team known for slow-down defense.
Losing four of it last five games likely cost Florida a higher seed closer to home, so the Gators head to Omaha, Neb., as a No. 7 seed to face No. 10 Virginia.
After a key injury to spark-plug forward Will Yeguete, Florida must overcome a decided lack of frontcourt depth. Good thing Billy Donovan has plenty of experience dealing with injuries.
