#3 Seed: The young 2005/06 Gators flew a bit under the radar, surprising many with their National Title run.  After suffering some midseason growing pains, these young Gators united into a dominant offensive and defensive force.  This Florida team never lost a regular season game by double digits, and entered the dance as a 3 seed.Coach Billy Donovan's squad campaign was led down through the tourney by a highly-competitive Joachim Noah, who completely dominated the March 06 dance it terms of overall performance.  These young Gators put forth a dominant display in March 2006 when things mattered most.  All key contributors pledged to return and repeat, walking away from millions of dollars in the process - a lesson in commitment for all of CBB.
