Florida Beats Ohio State 84-75

The Gators were too much to handle once again Monday night, keeping their stranglehold on the college basketball world with an 84-75 victory over Ohio State for their second straight national championship.

You would think that if someone told you before tipoff that if Greg Oden would score 25 points and grab 12 rebounds it would be pretty hard for Florida to beat OSU. Well he did that, but Florida was in control most of the way, and repeated as national champions which isn't a very easy thing to do in this day of age with all the parity. The Gator's become the first team to repeat since Duke in 1991-92 and have added their name to the debate about the best teams of all time, not to mention one of the best athletic programs of all time.

This win completes a 2007 championship-game sweep of the Buckeyes (35-4) in college's two biggest sports -- men's hoops and football. Florida, a 41-14 winner in the football title game in January, remains the only program in history to hold both championships at the same time.
