On paper, (4) Florida taking on (5) Virginia in the East region looks like one of the toughest games to predict in the second round. These teams are very evenly matched, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if this game came down to the final minute. Whoever makes the most plays down the stretch will most likely be marching on to the Sweet Sixteen.
It looked like Florida was going to be in a dog fight in their first round game, as they took a 33-32 lead into the half against (13) East Tennessee State. But they started clicking on all cylinders in the second half, and they cruised to an 80-65 victory. Devin Robinson was the hero for the Gators, pouring in 24 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the floor.
Virginia pulled out a hard-fought win in their first round game, avoiding becoming the victim of a textbook 12-seed/5-seed upset. The Cavaliers topped (12) UNC Wilmington 76-71, bolstered by a monster game from London Perrantes. The senior guard scored 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the floor.
Now that the stage has been set, let’s breakdown everything you need to know to watch tonight’s game.
