The Gators took a big second-half lead but had to hold on for dear life in the final minutes as the Wolf Pack mounted an impressive comeback.
TV20's Sports Director Kevin Wells is in Des Moines covering the team; so join us later this afternoon as he anchors our complete Florida basketball coverage.
Next up, the Gators will look to pull a big upset against #2 seed Michigan.
The Wolverines crushed the Montana Grizzlies late last night, and they'll look to keep that momentum going on Saturday against the Gators.
