    Florida Advances To Elite Eight

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Mike Rosario had 15 points and Florida is going to an NCAA regional final for the third year in a row after a 62-50 victory over Florida Gulf Coast, the No. 15 seed whose improbable tournament journey ended just before midnight Friday.

    Florida Gulf Coast held an early 11-point lead against the three seed from the SEC.

    Michael Frazier made a pair of 3-pointers to start a 16-0 run late in the first half. That came in a 4 1/2-minute span when the Eagles (26-11) had four turnovers and missed their only shot. They trailed the rest of the game.

    The Gators play Michigan in the South Regional final at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday.
