NCAA Tournament, Halftime Score: Florida Leads Louisville 41-33

Guard play has carried the Florida Gators to the Elite Eight, and after one half of play against Louisville, it's primarily been the Gators' perimeter shooting that's created a 41-33 Florida lead. UF has hit eight three pointers — two apiece from Erik Murphy, Kenny Boynton, Bradley Beal and Erving Walker — to build a lead over a Cardinals team that's shot poorly from the floor thus far (44 percent, and only 3-of-8 from three point range).

Florida created a run midway through the half when the Gators began to trade treys for inside shots from Louisville, turning a 19-19 tie to a 35-27 advantage. Murphy leads all scorers with 10 points, while Kyle Kuric and Gorgui Dieng lead the Cardinals with 8 points apiece.
