2012 NCAA Bracket, Marquette Vs. Florida: Gators Win 68-58, Move On To Second Straight Elite Eight

Florida came into the 2012 NCAA Tournament as one of the nation's coldest teams. Now, the Gators are hot, and after a 68-58 win over Marquette in the Sweet 16, they are guaranteed to be one of the last eight squads standing.

Bradley Beal was the Gators' star on Thursday night, stuffing the stat sheet with 21 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks. Unsurprisingly, his highlight reel for the game is pretty impressive.

And Mike Rosario celebrating the win is worth a look, too.

Marquette wasn't able to keep up, shooting an ice-cold 30.8 percent from the field and getting the 29 points Jae Crowder and Darius Johnson-Odom were able to score on a combined 30 shots.

Florida moves on to the Elite Eight, where Billy Donovan will meet his college coach and mentor, Rick Pitino, and the Louisville Cardinals.
