No.3 Florida State defeats No. 11 FGCU 86-80

No.3 Florida State defeats No. 11 FGCU 86-80

"Jarquez has been such an asset to our program during his career", Hamilton said. "Kind of fuel, motivation".

Heading into Thursday's game the Gators were a popular pick to be upset by the Bucs.

The star of the show for UF was clearly Devin Robinson.

"Their speed and quickness [is the primary personnel concern]", Forbes said. White said the school has been a great fit, both for academics and basketball. All 14 of those points came in the second half, as Chiozza proved to be a spark plug for the Gators. The Xavier Musketeers are averaging 74.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 71.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Florida State would have a stretch forward who could score from inside or outside and protect the rim on defense. His 24 points were the most by a Gator in a postseason game since Mike Rosario dropped 25 against Minnesota in 2013. "We have to try to use that to our advantage".

"That's a testament to the coaching staffs that we have, that they're all able to be successful and get the most out of our kids on the field and in the classroom". "We had two or three that didn't go down that could have changed the complexion of the way it ended".

It didn't come without a little bit of drama, though. "We've got to try to use our physicality and our strength to try to keep Florida out of the paint".

- Florida State F Jonathan Isaac went above the rim to block a dunk attempt by FGCU in the final minute.

The Buccaneers players are well aware of the shelf life for the potential glory. He scored 14 in the second half, grabbed 5 rebounds and played some serious defense. "I love winning. To win on this stage would just be another - just part of my dream, just more to my dream".

P.J. Savoy missed two open 3's. Sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen (13.9 ppg) leads the way, and senior Canyon Barry (Rick Barry's son, and yes-he shoots granny-style free throws like his dad), is a must-find shooter on the wing (12.1 ppg). "I thought we never gave up". "I think ... one of the things that makes this tournament so special and March Madness such an exciting event is that every game is huge". "I definitely don't want to go home right now".

"A lot of people have us in the category of wait and see".

In the second half against East Tennessee, Robinson played with a measure of desperation.

"That said, it can't be a big factor for us".

"Again, you're up 12 in the second half against a really good (Vanderbilt) team - a team that had Kentucky down 19 at Rupp not too long ago", White said. The veteran coach knows, however, that final impressions about this season are still being formed.

White said it's insane to think that back in September she didn't even know if she's be playing this season.
