Florida, which came into the tournament averaging 9.5 turnovers (third in the nation), committed eight in the first half before turning a one-point halftime lead into a comfortable 15-point victory. “We had to rev it up,” Florida forward Devin Robinson told reporters after scoring a career-high 24 points. “We got comfortable at the end of the first half.”

In their last action, Florida was a 80-65 winner at home against Buccaneers. They covered the -9.5-point spread as favorites.
