Gators Advance to the Elite Eight

By  | 

With a physical style of play that saw Al Horfrod and Joakim Noah shine, the Gators knock off a smaller Butler squad by hitting 23 of their 28 free throws (82%).

Guard Taureen Green led all scorer with 17 points, while Butler was led by the hot hand of Pete Campbell who made 4 of his 6 three-point attempts.

The Gators continue their ride to defend their title in St. Louis against the winner of the UNLV/Oregon matchup.
