March Madness 2012: Florida Vs. Virginia Preview

The Florida Gators will get their NCAA Tournament run underway on Friday when they take on the Virginia Cavaliers in a 7/10 matchup. The game starts at 2:10 pm and can be found on TNT.

There isn't really much of a difference between these teams other than pre-season expectations and the Conference they play in. The Gators have one more win than the Cavaliers both overall and in Conference, but they are the higher seed by a slight margin. The Cavaliers are led by first-team all ACC selection Mike Scott, one of the best players in the Nation. Despite the difference in seeding, the Cavaliers should not be taken lightly.
