ORLANDO, Fla.-- Nine different Gators ended up on the score sheet on Saturday night as Florida dominated Virginia 65-39 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. According to UF, this versatility on offense sets them apart.

Florida is on its way to its first Sweet Sixteen appearance in three years. The Gators beat Virginia 65-39 by not only dominating the Cavaliers defensively, but also showing versatility offensively. Despite both Kevaughn Allen and Canyon Barry going a combined 3-for-14 on the night, the Gators were able to record a great showing on the score sheet with nine players recording points. 

UF's attack was led by Devin Robinson and Justin Leon, who both ended the night with double-doubles - Robinson with 14 points and 11 rebounds, while Leon recorded 14 points and ten rebounds [Leon's 14 points came during Florida's 21-0 run in between the first and second half that sealed the win over the Cavaliers].
