It wasn’t exactly easy, but the Florida Gators made it into the NCAA Tournament.

The Gators landed an at-large bid after a somewhat disappointing season. They were expected to do big things, and while they finished as a 3 seed in the SEC Tournament, they lost their first game to the Arkansas Razorbacks on Friday. At 20-12, the Gators did enough to get into the field, though.

Florida’s first NCAA Tournament game will be against either the St. Bonaventure Bonnies or UCLA Bruins. They will play on Thursday in Dallas, Texas at the American Airlines Center as part of Round of 64 action.
