St. Bonaventure Looks To Reject History, Defeat Florida

It is far from a common occurrence but when taking on the big ole SEC, the St. Bonaventure Bonnies have had little success. St. Bonaventure has lost five consecutive games against the conference – including a 73-66 loss to the Florida Gators during the non-conference schedule last season. Now the Bonnies need to buck history if they want to topple those Gators and move on past the Round of 64.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Florida’s last 11 games, with an average combined score of 132.2 ppg.
  • St. Bonaventure is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games against teams with winning records.
  • Florida is 7-1 SU in its last eight games against the A-10.

St. Bonaventure won its First Four game against UCLA – despite some mediocre play from its usually dominant backcourt. Instead, it was often-overlooked Courtney Stockard who scored a game-high 26 points after missing the A-10 championship due to injury. However, if the Bonnies want to pull off the upset, they will need Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley to shoot better than the combined 6-for-28 that they did against UCLA.

Florida has been a Jekyll and Hyde team all season long. The Gators have gone on impressive stretches in which they beat the likes of Texas A&M and Kentucky but have also been downright terrible at times with losses to Loyola-Chicago and South Carolina. The talent is undoubtedly there with Jalen Hudson, Egor Koulechov and Chris Chiozza but they run so hot and cold that it is hard to trust them.
