Overall the Gators had an incredible regular season, Thornqvist says the team is playing great going into the tournament.  The Bulldogs are the sixth seed in this tournament, they defeated No. 11 Tennessee on Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals against the Gators. Florida is looking to bounce back from their last match, where they lost to Vanderbilt on April 16th. Their eight-match win streak was halted due to the loss.
