Florida Knocks Out BYU In Overtime, Advances To Elite Eight

Alex Tyus was dominant in the paint today for the Florida Gators, 19 points and 17 rebounds, as they ended the Jimmer Fredette show as they defeated the Cougars of Brigham Young 83-74 in overtime, despite Fredette's 32 points, in the first Southeast Regional Semifinal matchup this evening in New Orleans. The Gators were very balanced offensively with four guys scoring at least 16 points while Fredette was the only Cougar in double figures. The Gators now advance to the Elite Eight and they will play Butler this Saturday for the right to advance to the Final Four.
Gus Johnson, Len Elmore and Reggie Miller have the recap from New Orleans Arena.
