Florida received an at-large berth Monday into the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, where the Gators earned the No. 11 seed and will face sixth-seeded Dayton (23-7) on Sunday at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pa.
Tip-off between the Gators (19-12) and Flyers (23-7) is set for 3 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN.
The winner of that first-round contest advances to play the winner between No. 3 seed Penn State (22-7) and 14th-seeded Wichita State (26-6). That second-round contest will be held March 25.
The Gators last played in the NCAA tournament two years ago, when they lost to overall No. 1 seed and eventual national champion Baylor in the second round.
