1. Gators win despite shooting just 38.6% from the floor. Florida defense forces 20 turnovers. Senior guard Kenny Boynton: “To be in the final eight says a lot, but we don’t want to settle here.”
2. Game-high 15 points from Mike Rosario. Coach Billy Donovan: “I’m happy for Mike Rosario, (Kenny) Boynton and Erik Murphy. But I’m proud of what they’ve been able to do up to this point in time and they’ve gotten better.”
3. “This Gators squad isn’t as talented as the back-to-back national champs Billy Donovan coached in 2006 and 2007… but it can beat any of the remaining teams in this tournament.”
4. Quick turnaround for Florida from late Friday night to Sunday afternoon. Will play Michigan for the right to go to the Final Four.
