FLORIDA (1) vs. DAYTON (11)

There’s little question that unheralded Dayton played a better game than Florida did Thursday, but both teams advanced and now they’ll square off with a Final Four berth on the line.

On paper, the Gators should be heavy favourites, but the Flyers have seemingly found lightning in a bottle, slipping by Ohio State and Syracuse by a total of three points before soundly outplaying Stanford. The deep Flyers will look to continue to attack as much as possible – at both ends – turning the game into a track meet and going deep into their bench. The bigger Gators, with bruisers inside, would prefer to slow things down, but have the depth to equal Dayton, something Stanford couldn’t do.

Who will impose their will? The betting is on Florida, since few teams have been their equal this season.
