Under Donovan, UF is 24-8 in the Big Dance with three Final Four appearances. Fredette, the MWC Player of the Year and the nations leading scorer, once again proved why hes the leading candidate for the Naismith National Player of the Year, pouring in 34 points and adding six assists in BYUs convincing 89-67 victory against Gonzaga Saturday. The win allowed the Cougars to reach the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1981, as the offense shredded Gonzagas normally stout defense to shoot 52.5 percent from the floor and bury 14-of-28 three-pointers (50.0 percent). Fredette had seven of those treys on 12 attempts. BYU also got major contributions from Jackson Emery and Noah Hartsock, who recorded 16 and 13 points, respectively, while Stephen Rogers scored 10.

The Cougars have won each of their three previous engagements with the Gators, having logged regular-season wins in 1959 and 1991. Fredette continues to establish the Cougars as one of the top programs in the country this year, averaging 28.8 points per game, 4.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals with the third-most three-pointers (121) in the nation. His assists stand third in the MWC, while leading the conference in free-throw percentage (89.1) and knocking down 40.6 percent of this three-point attempts. Overall, the 6-2 senior shoots 45.5 percent from the floor and is averaging 33.0 points through the Cougars first two tournament games. Fredette is coming off a record performance in the MWC Tournament where he averaged 35.3 points per game on his way to tournament MVP. Emery, Fredettes backcourt mate and MWC Defensive Player of the Year, helps to carry the load by putting up 12.6 ppg, 3.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.8 steals per contest. Emerys 99 steals this year set a single-season school record in becoming the programs all-time leader in the department, while his season average stands sixth in the country.

He shoots 50.4 percent from the field. BYUs overall offense ranks eighth in the nation in putting up 81.6 ppg. The Cougars scoring margin stands fifth in the country (plus-14.1) with a defense that holds opponents to 67.5 ppg. BYU could stand to improve a bit on a 45.3 shooting percentage but help its cause with the nations 10th-ranked free-throw percentage (76.3). Florida has four double-digit scorers in the fold, and while none is considered a true star, the team-first approach has the club poised for a deep run in the tournament. Walker tops the roster in scoring with 14.7 points per game while adding 3.3 assists and 75 three-pointers on 39.3 percent shooting. The standout sophomore Boynton is tied with Walker for the team-lead in threes but at a 33.2-percent accuracy. He stands second to Walker at 14.0 ppg. The versatile senior Chandler Parsons provides 11.4 ppg and team-highs of 7.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists. He contributed seven points, five rebounds and five assists against the Bruins Saturday. Macklin stands third in the SEC in field- goal percentage (58.1) and averages 11.3 ppg to pair with 5.4 boards. Alex Tyus pulls down 5.7 rpg and adds 8.6 ppg to the mix. The senior was huge versus UCLA, grabbing a season-high 13 rebounds to go along with eight points. The Gators produce a nice balance on both ends of the floor to place fourth in the SEC in scoring offense (71.8 ppg) and second in scoring defense (62.8 ppg). Florida tops the conference in field-goal percentage (46.5) and is also the leagues top rebounding team with a plus-5.9 margin with 37.3 per game in addition to ranking second in both assists (13.9 apg) and assist/turnover ratio. One area of concern continues to be free-throw shooting where the Gators place ninth (67.1), though Walker helped to shed that label late against the Bruins. ' ' '
