A night of celebration for the Buffalo Bulls, was a night of sorrow for the St. Bonaventure Bonnies. The Bonnies lost to the sixth-seeded Florida Gators, 77-62 in the Round of 64 at the NCAA Tournament. It was a tough night for St. Bonaventure shooting the basketball. They were just 35-percent from the field, and just 16-percent from three-point range. Guard Jaylen Adams shot just 2-of-6 from the field for eleven points, while forward Courtney Stockard led the way with 14 points.

Florida was led by senior guard Egor Koulechov, who had a game-high four three-pointers and 20 points.

Bonaventure's season ends after going 26-8, losing to Davidson in the Atlantic-10 semifinals, and beating UCLA in the First Four. It was a tough task to play on Tuesday in Dayton, Ohio and travel to Dallas, Texas to play on Thursday night.

St. Bonaventure will now look to a future without guards Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley, who will be graduating at the end of the year. This was St. Bonaventure's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2012.
