Florida opens the NCAA Tournament looking to find its stride again after a late-season slide and an early exit from the SEC tournament. The Gators are the fourth seed in the East region, and while they will be favored in Thursday’s first-round matchup against No. 13 seed East Tennessee State in Orlando, losses in three of their final four games have raised questions on how far the Gators can advance.

Florida, which lost to Vanderbilt in the regular-season finale and again in the SEC quarterfinals, features a balanced offense which finished fourth in the SEC in scoring (78.9 points per game) and a defense ranked 14th nationally against the 3-point shot (30.7 percent). The Buccaneers won the Southern Conference title and are back in the NCAAs for the first time since 2010, winning nine of their final 10 games. East Tennessee State is one of the best shooting teams in the country, ranking 10th at 49.1 percent from the field while averaging 79.9 points per contest. The Buccaneers have faced two SEC teams this season, beating Mississippi State and losing by four to Tennessee.

Florida was a 72-62 loser in their most recent outing at home against Commodores. They failed to cover the -5.5-point spread as favorites.

East Tennessee State won its last outing, a 79-74 result against Spartans on March 06. They earned a push in that game as a -5-point favorite.
