The Florida Gators put their extensive winning streak on the line tonight against a UCLA Bruins squad that would love to end that streak and advance past the Sweet 16 in one swift stroke. Gators vs Bruins should be a great South Regional semifinal game tonight when we watch Florida vs UCLA online free live streaming NCAA basketball tonight on CBS Sports.
The Gators enter tonight’s game having won 28 consecutive games, a school record. Only Wichita State had a longer win streak this season and theirs was snapped last weekend in the round of 32 by Kentucky. Should Florida win then they will participate in the regional final for the fourth consecutive year.
The toughest match up for Florida will be Scottie Wilbekin having to go up against UCLA’s Kyle Anderson, who happens to be the Southeastern Conference player of the year. Not only is Anderson an extremely gifted offensive talent, but he is a full seven inches taller than Wilbekin. His length helps UCLA average over 80 points per game.
It will be tougher for the Bruins to explode on offense as the Florida Gators are considered to have one of the toughest defenses in the NCAA to score against. Their 57.5 points per game given up is third in the nation, and they made short work of Pittsburgh last weekend by holding them to only 45 points.
The Bruins will try to mix it up against the Gators, utilizing their offense that features guards able to post up and big men like Anderson able to shoot from the perimeter. UCLA knows the Gators aren’t a high scoring team, so they want a shootout and will be looking to push the ball in transition whenever possible.
History favors the Gators as the Bruins have never before beaten them. The oddsmakers say that trend and Florida’s win streak will remain intact, though we’re at the point in the NCAA Tournament where number one seeds become vulnerable to defeat.
