NCAA Bracket 2012, Florida Vs. Norfolk State Final Score: Gators Dominate 84-50

The Florida Gators have punched their ticket to the Sweet Sixteen with a dominating defeat of the upstart Norfolk State Spartans. Right from the opening tip, the Gators pounced all over Norfolk State jumping out to a massive lead, taking a 47-19 lead at halftime. The Gators took their foot off the gas just a bit in the second half, but were still able to win by 34 points, 84-50. The star of Norfolk State, Kyle O'Quinn was a complete non-factor for the Spartans as he was in foul trouble all evening, finishing up with just four points and three rebounds.

The Gators on the other hand just went to work, completely out matching the Spartans, shooting 52.8 percent from the floor. Kenny Boynton led the Gators in scoring on the night, picking up 20 points and eight rebounds. Bradley Beal added 14 points and 9 rebounds while Erving Walker picked up 15 points. With the victory, the Gators move on to the Sweet Sixteen to take on Marquette later in the week.
