When Was The Last Time Florida Won The NCAA Tournament?

Has any school been more successful than Florida in men’s basketball and football over the last decade? The answer is no. The Gators’ top two programs–revenue wise–have combined to win four national championships since 2006.  The Florida Gators men’s basketball team last won a national championship in 2007. It was their second championship in two years.  Led by Joakim...

Final Four Lookahead

Florida had not been to the Final Four since all those future first-round draft picks were in Gainesville. Wisconsin and coach Bo Ryan had never been. Connecticut wasn't allowed to play in the NCAA tournament a year ago, and Kentucky supposedly had no shot at getting to North Texas after a midseason swoon. Unlike the past few years, there will be no upstarts or Cinderella in...

Will Yeguete 'impacts winning' for Sweet 16-bound Gators

Center Patric Young likes to call them the Core Four. The Florida Gators' four seniors have been the backbone of a record-setting team that heads into this week's Sweet 16 hoping to join the iconic '04s of Joakim Noah and Al Horford as national champions. Collectively, the winningest senior class in school history has proven to be greater than the sum of its parts....

Could Louisville Get A No. 1 Seed? Unlikely, But It’s Not Too Far Fetched

Pete Cautulli – The Cardinal Connect What seed will Louisville earn in the NCAA Tournament? That is the million dollar question that has been asked for far too long. Ever since December, fans, reporters, radio hosts and writers have batted that question around with answers roaming from a six seed to a two seed.

Michael Frazier scores career-high as Florida throttles Georgia

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Breaking the school record for consecutive home wins should be something to celebrate. Not for No. 7 Florida, which has fallen one step short of the Final Four the last three years. Michael Frazier II scored a career-high 21 points and the Gators handled Georgia 72-50 on Tuesday night, notching their 25th straight at the O'Connell Center. Undermanned...

Donovan: Aaron Gordon's Effort, Energy Comparable To Joakim Noah

Aaron Gordon leads Team USA with averages of 13.5 points and 6.8 rebounds through six games of the FIBA U19 World Championship. Team USA coach Billy Donovan sees similarities between Gordon and Joakim Noah, who led Donovan’s Florida Gators to back-to-back national titles in 2006 and 2007. "I don't mean to say he's the same kind of player, but in terms of coaching him...

Five thoughts on Florida's win over FGCU

ARLINGTON, Texas The historical run is over. There will not be a 15-seed in the Elite Eight. Florida Gulf Coast raced out to a 15-6 lead but third-seeded Florida was too much during the final 10 minutes of the first half, building a 30-26 lead that it would never surrender, eventually securing a 62-50 victory. Here are my thoughts on Florida advancing to the Elite Eight for the...

Kentucky on NCAA Tournament Bubble One Year Removed From Capturing Basketball Crown

It’s unusual for a team to win the NCAA Basketball national championship and follow it up the next season by missing out on the Big Dance, but it does happen. Billy Donovan’s Florida Gators won back-to-back national titles in 2006 and ’07 behind future NBA first-round picks Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Corey Brewer. In 2007-08, Donovan had to replace those three and the Gators...
