Congratulations to the Florida Gators for winning the national championship. The outcome was never in doubt.
All in all, it was preparation. Billy Donovan, having been in the final game before, was not going to be denied this one. He had these kids well-prepared and motivated. I knew just after the opening tip, I saw it in the Florida team's eyes. I knew the look of determination, I have seen it before. In contrast, were the eyes of the UCLA players. They seemed nervous and unsure.
Florida was just too quick and too strong, inside and out.
As for UCLA, I am glad they made it this far and am tickled that the program is back on track. As every team in the country says this time of year (after this game), wait until next year.
