On Monday, the Florida Gators learned of their NCAA fate. Despite a season of youthful struggles, the Gators are in. A No. 27 ranking in the RPI and a strong schedule certainly factored into the Gators making the field of 64.
Florida will be headed to Lubbock, Texas where No. 8 national seed Texas Tech will play host.
The Gators will open play against Dallas Baptist (41-18).
Florida struggled to a 33-24 record but a 13-17 conference record. The Gators exited the SEC Tournament after an 8-7 defeat to Texas A&M.
