Florida Vs. Virginia Halftime Score: Gators Up 30-22

It's been a great defensive half for the Florida Gators in their first NCAA Tournament game, and incredibly, they're leading without shooting the ball well at all. Florida leads the Virginia Cavaliers 30-22 at halftime, but they're shooting just 1-15 from behind the three-point arc. Tony Bennett's team is keeping the pace and the score low as they would like, but he won't be happy that Florida is ahead even though they can't shoot the three.

UVA's star Mike Scott is doing well with eight points and four rebounds, but he hasn't had much offensive help from his teammates. Virginia is shooting just 38 percent from the field. Florida has seven offensive rebounds to UVA's one, and that's been a big difference between the teams. Florida can't make threes, but they're doing a decent job of getting second chance points.
