Gators want to "make some noise'' in NCAA Tournament



BILLYSIDELINE Florida and BYU will kick off the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament today at 12:20, and the Gators are hoping it isn't a one-and-done situation.

Despite losing four of their last five games entering the tournament, the Gators said they are on a mission to prove they belong.

"We worked really hard this year,'' junior forward Chandler Parsons said. "We’ve had a rough two years. I’m just happy for the university to get back there, I’m happy for the program. But we want to prove to people that we're supposed to be there, We don’t just want to be there, we want to make some noise.''
