Florida advanced to the Sweet 16 on Saturday with a convincing 61-45 win over Pittsburgh. Gators coach Billy Donovan had to be pleased with the way his team played on both sides of the ball, but he was probably not that thrilled with the name card he was sitting behind during his postgame press conference.
Somehow, the person who printed Donovan’s name card spelled his last name “Donavan.” Go figure — we haven’t heard about any issues spelling “Krzyzewski” during tournament games, but someone screws up one of the most common names in the country. Donovan poked fun at the error.
"Just two more question here, coach Donovan has other obligations and…" "Like getting my name spelled right, right?" *laughs* - Donovan

Expect proper spelling in the Sweet 16 and potentially beyond.
