Biggest Challenges Florida Faces in NCAA Tourney Matchup vs. UCLA

The Florida Gators will get down to the business at hand in the Sweet 16 against the UCLA Bruins.

There are no more easy teams and no more walkover games. The Gators toyed with Albany in their opening game before they flexed their muscles and rolled past Pittsburgh.

Florida arrives in Memphis riding a 28-game winning streak. This is the fourth straight year the Gators have reached the Sweet 16. They are 3-0 in the tournament vs. UCLA, beating them in the 2006 national championship game, the 2007 national semifinals and a 2011 round of 32 matchup.

Head coach Billy Donovan led the Gators to each of those victories, but he knows this year's UCLA team represents a major challenge, as the Bruins have won their last five games by an average of 16.4 points and are capable of causing problems for Florida.
