Gators to SEC Finals (Nashville)

The Florida Gators showed today why they are one of the teams to be on the lookout for in NCAA tournamount. The Gators steamrolled the LSU Tigers in the second half to gain a birth in the SEC Final game. The Gators will get the chance to defend their SEC Tourney title from 2005.

In Day 3, the higher ranked team on each side of the bracket lost. This sets up a rematch against South Carolina. In the regular season, the Gamecocks are the only SEC East team that the Gators surprisingly lost to both at home and away. You know what they say, its hard to beat the same team each and every time out. Lets put an end this South Carolina Spurrier jinx where the Gamecocks are like kryptonite to the Gators.

The Gators know what the scoreboard showed this season against the "other" Carolina. They have payback on their minds.

"We are very, very, very excited," Noah said when asked about today's rematch. "For all of us, as Gators, it's a dream for us to play them in the championship. We'll have to be ready for a war ? physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, in every way."

Great-to-be-a-Florida-Gator!
