It is a battle of the SEC against the lone remaining member of the ACC as the second day of the Elite Eight gets underway on Sunday.
Obviously, today won’t be as great as yesterday, because, well, Gonzaga isn’t playing today. That still doesn’t mean some good basketball is off the table.
The No. 4 Florida Gators face off against the lone remaining underdog, the No. 7 South Carolina Gamecocks. On the other end of the spectrum, you have what will most likely be the premier game of the day—the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels against the No. 2 Kentucky Wildcats.
Each team is fighting for a spot in the Final Four, and Gonzaga fans should play close attention to Florida and South Carolina. That will be the Zags future opponent. One team they have already beat this season, and the other team is playing out of its mind right now. Sound familiar?
