GALLERY: Final Four Midtown Reactions


Midtown was a sea of orange and blue as hundreds of enthusiastic Gator fans packed inside the many sports bars and restaurants alongside W. University Ave.  in Gainesville, Fla.

Patrons came out to watch the Florida Gators take on the University of Connecticut Huskies in the Final Four game of the NCAA basketball tournament.

The Swamp Restaurant was filled with emotionally charged UF fans as they watched with bated breath as the Gators struggled against UConn.

Cheers were closely followed by groans as the fans became worried for their Florida team during the last few minutes of the game.

In the end, UConn was able to pull off an upset and win 63-53 against the Florida team, leaving the UF supporters feeling distraught and defeated.

The Huskies will compete against the University of Kentucky on Monday evening in the National Championship game at 5 p.m.
