GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida coach Billy Donovan calls it "media drama."

Everyone else, including his players, see the 14th-ranked Gators as having something to prove as they head onto college basketball's biggest stage.

Florida, the No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament's South Region, can't seem to close out close games. The Gators are 0-6 in games decided by six points or less this season, including 0-4 the last month.

The list includes three losses in which Florida led by at least seven points in the second half.

Center Patric Young says there are "plenty of games where we've had reasonable leads and there just seemed like a point where we went dead or allowed the team to come back with no resistance."

Florida plays 14th-seeded Northwestern State Friday in Austin, Texas.
