NCAA Tournament Second Round: No. 3 Florida State vs. No

NCAA Tournament Second Round: No. 3 Florida State vs. No

Listen to what Coach said ...

"It took forever to get here. And we don't want to go home".

He won't have to.

FGCU finished its season at 26-8 while Florida State advanced to face 11th-seeded Xavier, which beat sixth-seeded Maryland, on Saturday. The Buccaneers came back and tied the game at 30 late in the first half.

"A lot of changing the perception is on us", Hamilton said. As was the case throughout the game, the underdogs refused to go away.

Florida Gulf Coast countered a pair of Florida State runs and kept within single digits for most of the second half, cutting its deficit to just five points, 82-77, with 33 seconds left.

Robinson had 10 points and 2 rebounds at the half. He loves playing defense. Allen had an early steal that led to a Devin Robinson transition dunk, then found Robinson for a transition dunk on a pretty three-quarter court pass.

"When we're doing our best, I think it helps them do their best", said Caragan Phillips, a sophomore with the cheer team. He stayed aggressive. That's what I ask him to do. "We have to. Our attention to detail has to be through the roof Thursday and moving forward if we're gonna advance". "I thought we never gave up". They were only down one at the half, but ended up losing by 15 points, 80-65. Jonathan Isaac also rose to the occasion, showing why he is a potential National Basketball Association lottery pick with 17 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three blocks. The Gators would close the first half by missing 14 of their next 21 shots. That's how he wound up leading the Seminoles in rebounds (7.7 a game) and blocks (48). They managed only 18 shots between them, largely because Hayes rarely allowed them to get the ball in scoring position.

Significant stats: Florida made it rain from downtown in the second half, netting 6-of-12 threes with seven assists on 12 made baskets in the half. He streaked in for a layup that made it a 57-43 Florida lead.

"Again, you're up 12 in the second half against a really good (Vanderbilt) team - a team that had Kentucky down 19 at Rupp not too long ago", White said.

Chiozza and @Kasey Hil combined for 28 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists while living up to their hype as the fastest backcourt in the country. "They're really fast. They've got great guards". "Sometimes they show their speed and quickness getting to the rim". The Eagles trailed 49-42 at the time. "It makes everything look bad". For a nice (well, depending on who you talk to) there were also a few Gator fans scattered about, remainders from the Florida-Eastern Tennessee game earlier in the day.

"We're down two and Riley LaChance fades the opposite corner and we just lose sight of the best shooter in the SEC", White said. He made some threes.

Out in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season, the Eagles have all but two players returning next year, Marc-Eddy Norelia and Morant, and they're excited to have their new pieces join the team and make another at the NCAA Tournament next season.
