Yesterday was officially named “Gator Day” in the state of Florida to honor the National Championship victory of the men’s basketball team.
And now for the bragging rights…
Florida (as in “University of”) is one of only 7 schools to win a National Championship in both Football and Basketball!
Florida is the only school in the state of Florida to win a NCAA Basketball Championship.
Billy Donovan is one of only 3 coaches to both play in a Final Four and win a Championship.
Joakim Noah set a record with number of blocks- six total and five were in the first half!
But nothing beats the feeling of seeing my team successful in the national spotlight. They made me proud beyond words and not because I’m a huge basketball fan or anything like that, but because I’m a Gator. It’s great to be a Florida Gator. It always has been and always will be.
