Who do you cheer for in this year’s NCAA Men’s division 1 basketball tournament with only 1 team from Florida playing and they are in a play in game, which if they win earns them a date with Number One seed Duke.
University of North Florida men’s basketball team qualified for the tournament by winning their leagues tournament. The Osprey’s are the 2015 Atlantic Sun Champions. The campus of University North Florida is located in Jacksonville, Florida. The Osprey’s are 23-11 and they (played) will play Robert Morris on Wednesday March 18.
Once UNF is knocked out who should a basketball fan from Florida cheer for during the tournament. The odds on favorite is Kentucky, they haven’t lost a game yet this year and don’t look very beatable. The University of Florida finished with a losing season and didn’t make the big dance, nor the NIT tournament. They lost to Kentucky 3 times. They also lost 7 games by three points or less. So one eliminating playing the number one team three times and making one more shot in 7 different games, the Gators could have finished 26-7 instead of 16-17, but that is not reality.
