But the No. 3 seed Gators (29-7), with a roster filled with NCAA tourney experience, were just too strong and too good.
Michael Frazier made a pair of 3-pointers to start a 16-0 run late in the first half. That came in a 4 1/2-minute span when the Eagles (26-11) had four turnovers and missed their only shot. They trailed the rest of the game.
The Gators play Michigan in the South Regional final at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday. They are trying to get to their first NCAA Final Four since consecutive national championships in 2006 and 2007.
