One of the best NCAA Tournament showings in recent memory by the SEC just got its signature moment.
In the closing seconds of overtime with Florida trailing by two, Chris Chiozza hit a running three-pointer to give the Gators an 84-83 win over the Badgers, which means three SEC teams are playing for a Final Four berth on Sunday.

This came shortly after Kentucky beat UCLA, and John Calipari was happy to see three SEC teams potentially in the Elite Eight.
“If you’re still playing, there’s going to be eight of us left, how about South Carolina?” Calipari said after the Wildcats’ win over UCLA. “How about Frank Martin, what he’s doing in the Elite Eight? Did Florida win? Don’t put three SEC teams in the Elite Eight. No, not from the SEC.”
Yeah Cal, that happened.
