GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida already has cut down nets twice this season. The Gators have won a school-record 26 consecutive games, became the first team in Southeastern Conference history to go 18-0 in the regular season, won the league tournament and earned the overall top seed in the NCAA tournament for the second time.

No doubt, coach Billy Donovan’s team has accomplished a lot.

The Gators (32-2) aren’t satisfied, either.

The No. 1 seed in the South Region enters the NCAA tournament with an all-or-nothing mentality, knowing it needs six more wins to solidify a spot in program and college basketball lore. Anything short would be another disappointment for a hardened, senior-laden team that Casey Prather says has endured “a lot of heartbreak” by losing in a regional final the last three years.
