Once a "cinderella team"and now an elite basketball program, the Butler Bulldogs are back in the Elite Eight for the second consecutive year. Under management of Coach Brad Stevens, the Bulldogs are as ferocious as ever after a slow start to the season but now with a chance to go back to the Final Four. But hold on, because "Chomp! Chomp! Chomp!" come the Gators from Florida, who are sliding under the radar in the March Madness arena. A sleeper team ranked at number two, Florida under Coach Billy Donovan believes they deserve a spot in the Final Four. However, are the Gators barking up the wrong tree against these gritty Bulldogs? Well, quite frankly both teams are playing extremely well right now which makes this matchup a great game to start off the games today and tomorrow.
Keys to the Game: Florida's inside game vs. Butler's defense, Matt Howard's impact throughout the game, and transition defense for both teams.
So let the games begin. March Madness is heating up and it won't cool down anytime soon.
