NCAA Tournament Scores: Florida Takes A Commanding Lead Into Halftime Against Norfolk State


So, guys and girls, was the Norfolk State win over Missouri still worth it?

You could have had the two most offensively efficient teams in the country doing battle this early eveing with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line.

Instead, you're getting a lopsided blowout in an empty arena, as the Florida Gators have a comfortable 47-19 halftime lead.

Friday's hero, T.J. O'Quinn, as you can see, is a bit taken aback at today's events.

One of the best three-point shooting teams in the land, Florida is 7-16 from beyond the arc, and it's the reason they've been able to bury the Spartans quickly in this one.

"One day to the next day in this tournament can be very different," Billy Donovan told Craig Sager as he made his way to the locker room.

Yes, Billy, yes it can. And I am feeling pretty confident lightning will not strike for the second time in three days in Omaha.
