    The reason I and if I may be so presumptuous WE, are fans of this game.

    My hats off to a MAGNIFICENT effort
    by both teams. An HONOR to watch.

    No fan of UCLA and no nothing of that locker room but WOW a fire was ignited
    under that play in .......may we use this as a great example of a team “peaking” at the right time??

    Zags - Suggs and Timmi will get the accolades and deservedly so but our Andrew had a huge role in the win, huge!

    I can’t help this - Did anyone catch Raffteries comment at the start of OT?

    Inhale and Enjoy

    I only watched Florida in the tournament
    I couldn't bear to watch a tournament with fsu and Bama advancing so far. I hate them that much. But I tuned in to watch gonzaga vs UCLA because it sounded intriguing. Glad I did. Epic battle and well played game minus the free throw shooting. It was mentioned in another thread that it was one of thr best games ever since the UK/Duke Laettner game. Throw back game as well and not just the modern day 3ball Chuck.

    that was one for the ages
    anyone that said they knew it was going in....I'm pretty sure he didn't call glass. His line was good though, but he's damn lucky as his forward momentum carried it long
    That block he had was unbelievable, but should have been basket interference as his hand was in the net and you could see the basket move

    I wanted to cheer for Nembhard but I couldn't. All I could think was "traitor"
    I know I'm petty :)

    Andrew was a great Gator while here, and I don’t blame him for leaving to go somewhere he thought would showcase his skills better. I’m glad to see him in the championship as it gives me someone to cheer for.

    I don't know the reasons he left and going to gonzaga of all places softened the blow. As such I don't have any hard feelings for him. No problem rooting for them.

    I thought Nembhard showcased his skills, particularly his signature skill of passing/playmaking, pretty well while here. I don't know that Gonzaga would have taken him on a loaded team if he hadn't. It is good for Nembhard that his skills are greatly appreciated where he is now.

    It was painful for me to see the one great passer on an otherwise poor Gator passing team leave. I support White, but I hope the allegation I've heard that he was for Nembhard's departure is false. It would make me question him.
