INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- There go the Florida Gators again, runnin' it up on their way to a national championship.
In basketball, believe it or not. Against UCLA, of all teams. And with a tennis player's son as the star.
Joakim Noah dominated the Bruins on Monday night with 16 points, nine rebounds and a record six blocks to key a 73-57 blowout for Florida's first title in that other sport.
"It's like I'm in a cloud," Noah said. "Not only does this feel good, but it smells good and it tastes good. I can't even describe it."
The Gators and all their fans would certainly agree, especially after watching this runaway -- a pick-your-score kind of game that was decided early.
