ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Florida and Connecticut were starting plenty of familiar faces in their national semifinal on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium.

The Gators, at 36-2 the overall No. 1 seed, were starting four seniors in Patric Young, Scottie Wilbekin, Will Yeguete and Casey Prather along with sophomore Michael Frazier II.

The Huskies, 30-8 and one of the surprises of the tournament, had seniors Shabazz Napier and Niels Giffey, juniors DeAndre Daniels and Ryan Boatright and sophomore Phillip Nolan in their first five.

Those are the same starting lineups as in their December meeting with the exception of Giffey, who came off the bench in UConn's 65-64 win. That remains the Gators' last loss.
