The 2017 NCAA Tournament East Region wraps up this afternoon. It will be a SEC showdown, as the South Carolina Gamecocks will face off with the Florida Gators. The winner of the game will head to Phoenix to participate in the Final Four. South Carolina has become the Cinderella of the 2017 NCAA Tournament. Frank Martin’s squad relied heavily on their defense throughout the season. They have had consistency on offense outside of do-it-all guard Sindarius Thornwell.
This particular preview will be a little shorter, because we know all about the Florida Gators – having seen the South Carolina Gamecocks play them twice and going 1-1 in the regular season. This time, though, there’s so much more at stake. For the Gamecocks, a first ever trip to the Final Four is forty minutes away. For the Gators, a sixth trip to the national semifinal is still in play, after a Chris Chiozza buzzer-beater in overtime powered them to a stirring 84-83 win against Wisconsin.
South Carolina: The Gamecocks are the Cinderella of March thus far, knocking off Marquette, Duke and Baylor in convincing wins to reach a point the program has never been before. That magical run can continue on Sunday against No. 4 seed Florida.
Florida: It’s no accident that the Gators have got to where they have, but they’ve had a little luck in getting here. No. 1 seed Villanova went down in the round of 32, No. 2 seed Duke followed suit, and No. 3 seed Baylor was ousted by the Gamecocks. It’s anyones game from here on, and Florida head coach Mike White has a legit shot to reach the Final Four in his first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance as a head coach.
