The excitement continues to build for the Gator Nation after Florida lasted another two rounds in the NCAA Tournament last week.
The Gainesville bunch disposed of UCLA and Dayton and now head to North Texas to try to win their third NCAA Championship.
It will be daunting, to say the least.
The Gators’ first opponent will be UConn, one of the only two teams to hand Florida losses this year.
A win over the Huskies could put Florida against Wisconsin, the other team that handed the Gators a loss.
More of a problem than that is the other possible opponent is Kentucky, a team Florida beat three times this year. Beating a team in basketball four times in a
year doesn’t happen much.
Florida is the only team I predicted to make the Final Four. I’m headed to Dallas and hope to be in Jerry’s Palace myself this weekend. I was happy to be in Indy, and lucky to be in Dallas when the Gators won their first two national titles. I’m going to be happy to be in North Texas when they win this one.
