Alley oop from Florida Gators Kenny Boyton to Casey Prather, vs Marquette.
PHOENIX - Almost every time he touches the ball, Bradley Beal does something special. His latest bit of basketball wizardry moved Florida a win away from the Final Four and set up Billy Donovan with a perfectly scripted matchup against his old coach and boss, Rick Pitino.
MILWAUKEE -- For Marquette to advance beyond the Sweet 16, the Golden Eagles will need to prevent Florida from getting good looks from 3-point range on Thursday night.
