No. 4 Louisville rallies against the No. 7 Gators for the right to go to New Orleans
The teacher beat the student for the 7th time in the Pitino- Billy the Kid match up. However, the Donovan led Gators had a major choke-job as they allowed the Cardinals to rally late in the game. It was a close game for most of the first half, then Florida ran away for an 8-point halftime lead. Florida never panicked even as Louisville went on a few short runs to cut into the lead, but they could not buy a bucket and Louisville took advantage by taking the lead with a minute to go and the first Final Four spot by winning, 72-68.
