But the Florida starters play so well together that they don't depend on one or two players. Taurean Green, Al Horford, Corey Brewer, Joakim Noah, and Lee Humphrey have averaged 11.6, 10.8, 12.6, 10.6 and 9.2 points per game in the tournament, respectively. Noah has pulled down 8.8 rebounds a game, and Horford is close behind with 7.8. And Humphrey, the only starter without a double digit scoring average, could change that this game. He scored 23 points, 21 of them off threes, in the Elite Eight against Kansas. UCLA is good, but they won't be able to take this balanced team.
My Pick: Florida 79, UCLA 70
CHAMPIONSHIP GAME (Monday, April 2, 9:21 p.m.)
(Florida vs. Georgetown)
Roy Hibbert will keep the Hoyas in the game, but the Gator's quintuple-threat offense and the smothering defense of Joakim Noah will make them repeat champions, the first since the '91 and '92 Duke teams, and only the second since John Wooden was still on the sidelines for UCLA.
My Pick: Florida 89, Georgetown 80
