Final Four: Dome filling up

By Jerry Palm - April 02, 2007

Both teams have been out already to shoot around and have returned to their locker rooms as we approach 30 minutes to tip.

Both bands and cheerleaders are out. My walk to and from the media area will be a little more adventurous today because the Florida cheerleaders are in the walkway instead of on the floor, which means we'll have to be careful to avoid getting kicked.

A TV station was interviewing a few members of the Ohio St band during a break in their playing.

Some Florida fans are walking around with T-shirts that say "We dotted both your eyes." You gotta love confidence.

There isn't much left to say about this game that hasn't already been said I suppose, but I think the key to Florida's chances of repeating can be summed up in three words: "value the rock." Turnovers have been the biggest problem so far for the Gators in this tournament. Turnovers kept Purdue, Butler and Oregon in those games as long as they were. Florida has been able to overcome that with good shooting. The only team the Gators failed to shoot at least 50% against in this tournament is Oregon. Ohio St really made Georgetown pay for their sloppy ball handling the other night. They'll do the same to Florida given the chance.
