NCAA Tournament Schedule: Florida Gators Vs. BYU Cougars In Rematch Of 2010 Tournament Game

There are four games on the schedule for in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. We took a look at the game between Connecticut and San Diego State a bit earlier. Now we take a look at another 3 Vs. 2 game, BYU and Florida.

Jimmer Fredette fever is sweeping the nation. While some people are solely focussed on whether or not Fredette can play in the NBA, I’d rather enjoy what the kid is doing in college. Fredette has averaged 29 points per game this season and will likely be named the Naismith Award Winner, basketball’s version of the Heisman Trophy.

Florida, meanwhile, knows firsthand what the Cougars are capable of. It was BYU that beat the Gators in the 2010 NCAA Tournament – Fredette scored 37 points – and are looking to return the favor with the stakes much higher.

“The game plan isn’t just to stop Jimmer,” the Gators’ Chandler Parsons said. “They’ve got a complete team. We had a taste playing against them last year and now we understand just how good they are. We don’t have to watch film to understand that. They’re strong and they execute.”

Parsons is no slouch himself being named the SEC Player of the Year.

MY PICK: Florida looks like a team possessed after losing in the SEC Tournament. Jimmer-mania is coming to an end.

FLORIDA 83 – BYU 75
