MEMPHIS, Tenn. Authentic Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . -- The Florida Gators are back where their last three seasons have ended with yet another chance to go to the Final Four. Being in the Elite Eight again, though, simply isnt enough. Michael Frazier II hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points as the Gators beat UCLA 79-68 Thursday night to reach its fourth consecutive NCAA regional final. "We just talked about it, and its not enough for us," Florida senior Will Yeguete said. "We have two days to get ready for a good team, and were just going to go for it on Saturday." The Gators (35-2) also extended the best winning streak in school history to 29 straight in reaching the South Regional final. "From a team aspect, I think weve done a great job of just staying in the moment and just trying to chase greatness," Frazier said. "When you do that, complacency isnt a factor so I think weve done a great job all year of just staying in the moment and chasing greatness." The tournaments overall top seed will play 11th-seeded Dayton on Saturday night for a trip to the Final Four. Dayton beat Stanford 82-72 earlier Thursday night. "Right now we got to put this game behind us and get focused on Dayton," Florida senior Scottie Wilbekin said. "Theyre a great team. Everybody is at this point in the season, and so we got to be locked in and ready because its going to be a battle." Wilbekin added 13 points for Florida. Casey Prather had 12 points, and Dorian Finney-Smith had 10. Kasey Hill had 10 assists. The Gators have not lost since Dec. 2. The Gators lost to Michigan a year ago in a regional final. "But its a new team that we have, and were playing a new team so its a totally different situation," Wilbekin said. "Were just excited to get this win and move onto the next game. Were totally focused on that. The past has no impact." UCLA (28-9) was back in a regional semifinal for the first time since 2008 under first-year coach Steve Alford. But the Bruins just couldnt match Floridas physical defence or outshoot the Gators. UCLA now is 0-4 against Florida coach Billy Donovan all-time -- all in the NCAA tournament. "They played very well," Alford said of the Gators. "They are an outstanding basketball team." Florida shot 50 per cent for the game (29 of 58), including 59.3 per cent in the second half. UCLA finished 42.2 per cent (27 of 64) shooting in only their fifth game scoring under 70 points this season. The Bruins were a cold 1 of 12 beyond the arc in the second half. Jordan Adams led the Bruins with 17 points, Kyle Anderson had 11 and five assists with nine rebounds. Travis Wear added 14. Frazier showed off the Gators shooting skills. He had hit only 3 of 13 beyond the arc through the Gators first two tournament wins but hit five of his first six against UCLA. The Gators led 36-30 at halftime and clicked on a different level in the second half. They hit their first six shots and eight of their first 10. Every time UCLA tried to make a run, Florida answered. First, it was Frazier hitting consecutive 3-pointers as UCLA pulled within 43-39. When the Bruins pulled within 56-55 on a layup by Norman Powell midway through the half, Finney-Smith hit a jumper for the first of 10 straight points. The Gators had UCLA running up and down the court so much Adams couldnt even hit the rim with a jumper despite having an open look at the basket. Wilbekin finished off the run with a three-point play that had the Gators solidly in control, up 66-55 with 5:34 left. "He hit two big shots down the stretch," Anderson said. "Thats what you expect out of your senior point guard. Hes been here in the Sweet 16 four years. He made big shots. Credit to him." For all the talk of Floridas stingy defence, UCLA opened the game blocking the Gators first two shots. The Bruins only blocked two more shots the rest of the game. The Bruins came in as one of the nations best scoring teams, averaging 81.5 points a game. Florida showed early it could shoot too, hitting 5 of 8 beyond the arc in spurt that turned a 14-11 deficit into a 20-16 lead. Back-to-back 3s from Frazier put the Gators ahead to stay. Every time Anderson got the ball near the UCLA basket, he found himself with at least two Gators trying to smother him. John Brown Jersey .Y. -- When the New York Islanders lead was cut in half in the opening minute of the third period, the sense of impending doom began wafting through Nassau Coliseum. Wholesale Ravens Jerseys Online .
