Manhattan Jaspers prepare for their match up against the Florida Gators

The Manhattan College Jaspers are getting ready to play the Florida Gators Thursday in the first-round of the NCAA Tournament.

Many people think the 12th-seeded Jaspers will upset the 5th-seeded Gators because the Jaspers played consistently and the Gators have been inconsistent all season.

The Gators were ranked number one in the country early in the season. The trio of Anthony Robertson, Matt Walsh and David Lee averaged more than 47 points per game for Florida this season.

The tip-off for Thursday's game is 12:20 p.m.
