About No. 6 Florida
The Gators have been one of the nation's most inconsistent teams. They've registered impressive wins over Cincinnati and Gonzaga but lost home games to Ole Miss and Georgia. So who knows which version will show up in the NCAA Tournament? But if Jalen Hudson, KeVaughan Allen and Chris Chiozza get going, Florida could reasonably make another Elite Eight.
About No. 11 St. Bonaventure
You want a sneaky good Sweet 16 dark horse? The Bonnies qualify because they have one of the best backcourts in the country with seniors Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley. Own wins over Maryland, Syracuse and Rhode Island.
