INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Florida coach Billy Donovan lifted the
national championship trophy above his head today after an
all-night celebration with players, coaches, family and friends.
He said he would remember the moment for the rest of his life.
It was special because Donovan never expected to achieve that
much so soon from his young Gators.
And who knows how soon it will happen again. Three sophomores,
including multidimensional forward Joakim Noah, have to decide
whether to return for next year.
But today the Gators are still celebrating their 73-57 victory
against UCLA in the NCCA championship.
