The UConn players said they know it will be a difficult task to win again.
“They are high right now. They are playing great basketball. They are sharing the basketball. They are all playing hard. They haven’t lost since then. It will be really tough,” Huskies forward DeAndre Daniels said Friday. “We feel great…. I feel like nobody is playing harder than us right now. We are just out there having fun and not playing for ourselves, but playing for each other.”

“These guys understand what goes into playing and competing, they’re really good as it relates to scouting report and preparation,” said Florida coach Bill Donovan. “I think they understand how hard they have to play, how well they have to play defensively together, offensively together.”
