Florida struggled in the first half, shooting 26 percent from the floor and missing all nine shots from 3-point range. The Gators led 26-25 at halftime despite 10 turnovers and two assists.

Coach Billy Donovan probably ripped his players at the break, especially with his mentor, Louisville coach Rick Pitino, sitting courtside. They responded with a considerably better effort in the second half, scoring 43 points on nearly 50-percent shooting.

Rory Spencer led the Eagles (1-2) with 13 points.
