2011 NCAA Tournament: UCLA Battles Florida Saturday On CBS

Now that their first...I mean second round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament is out of the way, the UCLA Bruins are set to face the Florida Gators on Saturday. The March Madness continues with a 11:45 a.m. PDT tip-off from the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa. The game will be televised on CBS, with Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel, and David Aldridge on the call.

The Bruins built a huge lead on Thursday against Michigan State, as many as 23 points in the second half, but nearly gave it all back after a furious rally by the Spartans. The Bruins held on for a two-point win, 78-76, the 100th NCAA Tournament win in school history for the Bruins. Florida dispatched the No. 15 seed UCSB Gauchos 79-51.
