Research Notes

  • Scottie Wilbekin scored more than 37 percent of Florida's points in its win over Dayton.

  • Florida held Dayton to eight transition points Saturday, less than half the Flyers' average in their first three games of the Men's Basketball Championship. The Flyers shot 30% in transition and had only one transition play in the second half.

  • Florida outscored Dayton 13-1 on second-chance points Saturday, including 5-0 in the second half. The Flyers did not have an offensive rebound on 11 misses after halftime. Starting at 5:44 in the second half, the Gators had back-to-back possessions that lasted over a minute, grabbing six offensive rebounds in those two possessions.

  • Florida disrupted Dayton's offense when pressing, holding the Flyers to 17.6% from the field on possessions that started with a full-court press. On seven of the 15 possessions that the Gators pressed, the Flyers did not attempt a shot until there was 6 seconds or fewer on the shot clock, making one such attempt.

  • Florida won its Round of 64, Round of 32, Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games by double digits while allowing fewer than 70 points. Only 2 other teams have ever done that -- Michigan State in 2000 and Duke in 1999.

  • Florida outscored Dayton by 20 points in 31 minutes with Patric Young on the court. Young scored 10 points in the paint, two fewer than the Flyers had as a team when he was on the floor.

  • Florida won its Round of 64, Round of 32, Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games by double digits. Five of the last 6 teams to win each of those 4 games by double digits went on to win the National Championship.
