The top-seeded Florida Gators (34-2) had little trouble with the Pitt Panthers, as they rolled to a 61-45 victory and have secured a spot in the Sweet 16.
Despite the margin, Florida did not have it's best offensive game. The Gators shot 43.1 percent from the floor and made 5-of-20 three-pointers. However, their defense shut down the Panthers.
Scottie Wilbekin led the way for the Gators with 21 points and his quickness and decisiveness with the ball prevented the Panthers from mounting any second-half rallies.
Florida has won 28 consecutive games.
