St. Louis: Butler couldn't do it

By Jerry Palm - March 23, 2007

Florida held on to defeat Butler 65-57 in a game that was closer than the score would indicate. Taurean Green ended up leading the Gators in scoring with 17. Horford added 16 and had a key defensive play late as well. With a six point lead and the Bulldogs looking for a three, he chased the guards around the perimeter. Finding it impossible to shoot over him, Mike Green drove to the hole for a layup, but Horford followed that and blocked it into the glass, ending Butler's last hopes.

As coach Donovan is waiting to be interviewed by CBS, Noah walks by on his way to the radio crew and Donovan stops him for a big hand-slap.

Butler's band is playing on. Game effort by the Bulldogs, but they just had no answer for Horford.

The teams are on the floor warming up for Game 2. I'll have more stats and press conference info later on.
