After falling just short of the Final Four each of the last three years, the fourth time was a charm for Florida. The Gators, the top-seeded team in the NCAA tournament, moved to the Final Four in Texas by knocking off a game Dayton team.
Billy Donovan’s team led by as many as 17 points before the Flyers rallied behind Dyshawn Pierre. In the end it was too much Scottie Wilbekin, Patric Young and Michael Frazier.
I was so impressed with Wilbekin’s leadership. He hit a big three-pointer at the end of the half. Wilbekin also settled his team down when Dayton made a big run.
Florida is looking for its third national championship, The team is two wins away from that goal.
