The Gators lost 78-66 to Tennessee on Friday in the SEC Tournament. Tre Mann did have 30 points for Florida, but only two in the first half as the Volunteers totally took the Gators' top scorer out of the game in the early going. Nonetheless, the Gators were able to get in, buoyed by their strong performance in the SEC despite losing the team's leader, Keyontae Johnson, following his collapse during a December game.
The Hokies stumbled down the stretch, losing four of their last eight games, including an 81-73 loss to North Carolina in the ACC Tournament. However, they do come in with a 15-6 record and are led by forward Keve Aluma, who averages 15.6 points per game.
