AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy arrived at Florida not too long after the Gators won consecutive national championships.
They are down to their last chance to get one for themselves.
Boynton and Murphy are part of the only Florida group to win consecutive outright SEC regular-season titles. The seniors have been to the NCAA tournament every season, this time as a No. 3 seed in the South Regional.
But they haven't been able to get Florida back to the Final Four, losing in regional finals the last two years.
Florida plays Southland Conference tournament champion Northwestern State (23-8), the NCAA's highest-scoring team (81 points a game).
The fast-paced Demons were also a No. 14 seed in their last NCAA tournament appearance seven years ago - and upset Iowa.
