Support for the (1) Florida Gators (34-2) has been strong from former members of the program all season long, and it continued on Saturday after the team advanced to the Sweet 16 for the fourth consecutive season with a 61-45 victory over the (9) Pittsburgh Panthers (26-10) in the Round of 32 in the 2014 NCAA Tournament at the Amyway Center in Orlando, FL. Check out what nearly a dozen former Florida basketball players had to say about their team’s victory.


  1. Dave Massey says:

    Great to hear from all these Gator greats, brings back a lot of memories. Hard to believe how far we have come. I was a freshman in 1976 and if we drew a 1,000 fans into Alligator Alley for any game I would be shocked. We rarely won even ten games. It’s great to be a Florida Gator!!!!!

      wow, the old gym. That brings back some memories, although I got there just after the o-dome was built. Still remember freshman registration in the gym

  2. J says:

    I think David Lee tweeted something about the Gators too… Go Gators

    To answer Teddy Dupay’s question: Hell yes we are!!!

  4. Ken (CA) says:

    Marreese tweet was kind of ho-hum, shame he left a year before he should have. Not only would he probably have had a much better NBA career than he has had because of learning more, but wouldn’t have been NIT if he had stayed.

    Awesome support from so many great guys, though!
