All eyes will be on Florida-BYU tonight as the Sweet 16 gets underway. For the second consecutive year the two programs face off in the tournament, but this time the stakes are higher. A year ago, the nation was introduced to the Cougar’s Jimmer Fredette (perhaps the greatest name ever in college basketball), as he put up 37 points in a first round overtime win over the Gators.
Florida will not be caught off guard tonight in New Orleans. But the question still remains; can they stop the best shooter in the tournament in Fredette? The winner moves on to Saturday and a shot at the Final Four in Houston.
The schedule tonight includes:
