FINALS WATCH: Florida with fast start this time

FINALS WATCH: Gators 7-0 start vs. UConn opposite last game in big building, when down 13-0
Posted on April 5, 2014 at 7:02 p.m.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Florida Gators got off to a much better start in the NCAA Final Four than they did in a regional final in the same building last year.

Florida scored the first seven points of Saturday’s national semifinal game against Connecticut at AT&T Stadium.

In the regional final at the massive building last season, the Gators were down 13-0 to Michigan just more than 3 minutes into the game.

Michigan went on to a 79-59 victory, and the Gators lost in a regional final for the third year in a row.

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
