Gators get third seed in NCAA Tournament
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Florida Gators will be the third seed in the South Region and play against 14th seeded Northwestern State on Friday in the NCAA Tournament.
The teams will play in Austin, Texas at a time still to be determined.
The Gators lost the SEC Championship game on Sunday afternoon, but with a record of 26-7 the selection committee thought highly enough of Billy Donovan's team to give them a third seed.
The Gators could eventually meet 2nd seeded Georgetown in the Sweet 16 which would be a rematch of the season opener in Jacksonville that was called at halftime because of condensation on the USS Bataan.
