Get to TNT late afternoon.
The first meeting ever between the Florida Gators and Nevada Wolf Pack is a big one in the NCAA Tournament, and it is now or never for the Wolf Pack.
Preseason expectations had Nevada wanting to reach the Final Four but they ended up with a seven seed with a 29-4 record. That record is extremely gaudy, yet some are downplaying what the Wolf Pack are.
The schedule as not great but they tried by having solid teams like Grand Canyon, Arizona State, USC, and Utah on the schedule. Only one of those made the NCAA Tournament in the Sun Devils.
It is possible that Nevada had not peaked yet this year and maybe were even bored at times because the thinking is that their season really begins with March Madness.
If they are going to top Florida they will need to possibly adjust to a slower pace, or force their own and make the Gators run to get out of its comfort zone. Also, the Gators go deep with no real one dominant scorer, but rather have six players who score at least eight points or more.
