UF Gator 'pre-game stuff'

Florida is back in the NCAA Tournament for a third straight year and the 20th time in program history. The Gators are 43-17 all-time in the tournament, with 11 trips to the Sweet 16, another 10 Elite Eights, five Final Fours and two national championships. Nevada is making its third straight appearance in the "Big Dance," and ninth appearance overall, with a 6-8 all-time mark and two trips to the Sweet 16, one coming last year. ... UF is the region's No. 10 seed and Nevada is the No. 7. ... The Gators are here because of their three-game run in the Southeastern Conference Tournament last week, when they smashed Arkansas by 16, defeated ninth-ranked, top-seeded and regular-season champion LSU on a 3-point shot with one second left, then lost to eventual tournament winner Auburn by three in the semifinals. The defeat of LSU gave UF two wins over the conference champs and coupled with an ambitious overall schedule one of the last at-large bids into the field of 68. The Wolf Pack's place in the tournament was never in doubt, even after being ousted by San Diego State in the second round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament. Nevada started the season with 14 straight wins and dominated its league on the way to a third straight conference crown and school-record 29 victories. ... This will be the first meeting between the two teams, both of which have been around more than a hundred years. ... The Gators' last NCAA trip was in 2018 to Dallas, where as a No. 6 seed they beat 11th-seeded St. Bonaventure, 77-62, then lost to No. 3-seed Texas Tech, 69-66, on a game that went down to the final possession. The Wolfpack, which played as a 7-seed in 2018 as well, defeated 10th-seeded Texas in overtime, 87-83, then upset No. 2-seed Cincinnati, 75-73, but lost a 69-68 heartbreaker in a battle of Cinderellas to No. 11-seed Loyola Chicago, which eventually reached the Final Four.

CHOPPED: The USC Culinary Challenge

It is a crisp, quiet Tuesday morning at 6 a.m. On campus, students are sleeping quietly in their dorms. But, just right across the street, the USC Hotel is buzzing with budding and seasoned chefs. The main ballroom has been transformed into what looks like the set of CHOPPED: 8 kitchen stations lining an entire wall, cameras, a stage with a judges' table, rows of chairs for the audience, even an announcer. The USC Culinary Challenge of 2019 has begun.
