Gators selected as 6-seed in NCAA Tournament

Gators selected as 6-seed in NCAA Tournament

The Bruins had some stiff competition in the non-conference portion of their schedule, posting wins over Georgia Tech, Wisconsin and Kentucky while falling to fellow tournament teams like Cincinnati, Michigan and Creighton.

TCU earned a six seed and will open against Arizona State or Syracuse Friday in the Detroit regional. "I'm happy for our team to have this opportunity, and we obviously have two really good potential opponents to start preparing for".

The 21-11 Horned Frogs snapped a drought that dated to the 1998 season for their last tournament appearance.

The Gators are 42-16 all-time in NCAA Tournament history and have advanced to the Elite Eight in five consecutive appearances (2011-14, '17), including White's first appearance with the Gators last season. He is also the first head coach in UF history to do so.




Despite a disappointing second round loss to the Louisville Cardinals in the ACC Tournament, Florida State basketball (20-11, 9-9 ACC) showed enough in the regular season to make the NCAA Tournament. Jaylen Adams leads St. Bonaventure with an average of 19.8 points and 5.4 assists per game while LaDarien Griffin is the Bonnies' top rebounder with 6.5 rebounds per game this season. They face 11th-seeded Loyola-Chicago.

Villanova, Kansas, Xavier and Virginia earned the No. 1 seeds in the 68-team field.

Syracuse (20-13) will take on Arizona State (20-11) of the Pacific-12 in the First Four round at 9:10 p.m. Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio. The national championship game is April 2.
