The Florida Gators were able to eek out a five point win against Ohio State in the last round, but things will get considerably tougher when they face the undefeated and top overall seeded Baylor Bears in the second round on Tuesday. The game starts at 7:05 pm and can be found on ESPN2 or online at ESPN3.

Simply put, Baylor has been an absolute steamroller this season. They are 35-0 on the season and are being led by Brittany Griner who i simply too tall for many of her opponents to handle. But the Bears are more than just Griner, In fact, Griner played spot minutes and only scored 13 points in their 81-40 rout of UCSB in the first round. But make no mistake, slowing down Griner is the first step to upsetting the Bears, not an easy task for the Gators.
