Final Four: Behind the numbers

By Jerry Palm - April 02, 2007

The Gators have shot themselves to a big halftime lead. Even though the Gators overall shooting percentage is just under 50%, but they are 6-9 from long range, and the last miss was a half-court attempt by Brewer at the buzzer. The Gators are getting nothing at all inside because Oden has been able to stay of the floor. Noah, Horford and Richard are a combined 2-10, with Horford having both hoops.

Ohio St, on the other hand, is getting almost nothing from the perimeter. The Buckeyes are 2-12 from long range, with Butler, Conley and Lewis a combined 0-6.

Florida has also done a good job taking care of the ball, which has not been the case in this tournament. The Gators actually lead the turnover battle 4-6, and are killing OSU in points off those turnovers 12-2.

Florida is not in a position to let up though. Ohio St has been proven to be very resilient.

The Marine Corps rifle team showed off some precision moves at halftime, and did it in complete silence. Then we got back to the typical dance-team action with the typical, bass-heavy, brain-damaging music.
