Gators are back in the Big Dance and they won't allow any distractions to interfere with their plans.

ORLANDO, Fla.-- The Florida basketball team is back in the NCAA Tournament. The Gators discuss the significance of the program being on the big stage once again and how they are making sure those outside distractions will not interfere with the team's mission.

Florida  is finally back in the NCAA tournament and for many on this Gators team it will be the first time they will play in the tournament. Kasey Hill is the only player that has tournament experience, although UF head coach Mike White has played in the tourney, this is his first appearance as a head coach. Although the tournament is exciting, it can be quite distracting with all the extra noise and hype surrounding the games. 

The Gators discuss how they are handling those distractions and why those early road games are giving them a nice confidence boost as they begin their campaign.
