Sean O'Donnell's Predictions
Florida will face Connecticut in a rematch from this past December. When these two teams last met, Shabazz Napier drilled a buzzer-beating jumper to defeat Florida by a single point. This marked one of the only two losses the Gators sustained this season.
This time around will be different. Scottie Wilbekin is playing some of the best basketball of his career, and the Gators have a great amount of depth and versatility on both ends of the court.
Napier has been fantastic recently, dropping at least 19 points in all four of his tournament contests, but he faces a Florida defense determined to shut him down this time around.
Wisconsin began the tournament in dominating fashion, crushing each and every opponent that got in its way. Frank Kaminsky has been a stud for this unit, and his emergence was a driving force in the team getting this far.
The Badgers face a young, hungry group of freshmen on Saturday in their toughest tournament contest to date.
Julius Randle and Co. have been stellar through four tournament games. This group has matured at a blistering pace and has some of the best chemistry of any team in the mix.
The Wildcats have a fast-paced offense versatile enough to aggressively drive and score in the paint or deliver crushing blows from three-point range.
Wisconsin simply doesn't have the means of keeping up.
