Louisville has booked a place in the Final Four after beating Florida 72-68.The Gators dominated the game throughout, but they completely fell apart in the last eight minutes.
Here are the gory details:
Florida scored three points in the last eight minutes.
Louisville ended the game on a 18-3 run.
Florida shot 1-12 in the last eight minutes, and 1-4 on free throws.
Peyton Siva, Louisville’s best player, fouled out with four minutes left.
It was a pretty ridiculous collapse.
But kudos to Louisville, especially Russ Smith (who scored 19 points) and Rick Pitino (who had the courage to switch out of the match-up zone defence that the Cardinals had played all season after Florida lit them up in the first half).
It was ugly and poorly played, but nonetheless fun. March Madness!
