For ESPN.com NCAA Tournament expert Joe Lunardi, Florida’s hopes for a return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007 rest on two things. The Gators must win a pair of games in next week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament. UF has a first-round game with Auburn on Thursday followed by a possible second-round matchup against Western Division champion Mississippi State. Or the Gators can beat No. 3 Kentucky today in Rupp Arena.
