After escaping Albany, Gators turn sights on Pittsburgh



It took much longer than almost anyone would have expected, but No. 1 seed Florida escaped with a 67-55 victory over No. 16 seed Albany Thuersday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament South Regional in Orlando.

Senior C Patric Young had his second double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and freshman G Kasey Hill was instrumental in a run that helped the Gators pull away from the Great Danes.

After the game, Florida senior G Scottie Wilbekin talked about the Gators' struggles and what they must do to get ready for Pittsburgh on Saturday.
