Billy Donovan, back on top: Nice to read these pieces. (Eamonn Brennan, ESPN)

How Shabazz beat Florida: Scottie Wilbekin only heard that shot in the locker room. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)

But don't talk about Scottie missing the UConn game: Right. (John F. Silver, SNY UCONN)

Patric Young, gentle giant: Don't think Pat was a projected lottery pick after the 2010-11 season, but, other than that, a good read. (Pat Forde, Yahoo! Sports)

Scottie Wilbekin on an all-Tournament team: He may end up on a few more. (Mark Titus, Grantland)

Wisconsin has the most impressive NCAA Tournament run? This is the part where "data journalism" outsmarts itself. (Nate Silver, FiveThirtyEight)

Florida's spring game is offense vs. defense: This will make it more fun, I think. (Scott Carter, GatorZone)

Florida up to No. 4 in SEC baseball power poll: I have yet to vote this season, for the record. (Justin Sutton, For Whom the Cowbell Tolls)

Your Gators moments of zen:

Pat has his Xbox One. Kasey has a shirt you may be familiar with.

From Pat's Instagram:

The elementary school my dad works at surprised him and wanted to wish us goodluck in the final four. What an awesome picture.

Non-gymnasts doing gymnastics will always be funny.

The Gator-blocking-Gator bit from the Georgia Southern loss included in this collection of bloopers shown at the Florida Letterman Awards, but it's not the No. 1 moment — and justifiably so. I do like the #ItsGreatUF hashtag, and I like that our program knows how to laugh at itself.
