Three Florida universities head to the NCAA tournament, but it might not be the trifecta people put their money on.
Even though the Gators crumbled in Sundays Southeastern Conference tournament final, the University of Florida was a shoe-in for a spot in the highly-anticipated March hoops tourney.
The Billy Donovan-led team secured a No. 3 seed in the South, and will start its bracket in a game against 14-seed Northwestern State, who entered the Southland Conference tournament as the country's top-scoring team. That game will be held in Austin on Friday.
