Top-ranked Florida was supposed to be the team that dominated with defense, but the Gators got locked down by still-streaking UConn in a stunningly easy 63-53 Huskies win. DeAndre Daniels continued his phenomenal postseason with 20 points and 10 rebounds (all defensive) in the win.

Shabazz Napier was quieter than usual as a scorer, finishing with just 12 points, but he did dish out six assists and grab four steals. Meanwhile, backcourt mate Ryan Boatright derailed the Florida offense with relentless ball pressure, even if he only recorded one official steal.

For the Gators, postseason hero Scottie Wilbekin vanished in the face of Boatright’s D, scoring just four points on 2-of-9 shooting. Patric Young did plenty of scoring against the skinny Huskies front line, but his inability to protect the rim on the other end did far more damage than his 19 points could make up for.

Worst of all for the Gators, Michael Frazier II hit the team’s only three-pointer on Florida’s opening possession. After that, the Huskies clamped down on the perimeter and Florida went 0-of-9 the rest of the way.
