Things are going to be different when Florida takes on Connecticut at the Final Four.

With everything on the line, expect more intensity compared to when the schools met back on Dec. 2 in Storrs, Conn. Expect to see star Florida guard Scottie Wilbekin down the stretch, something that didn’t happen the last time, because Wilbekin left late with a sprained ankle.

You should also anticipate more stunning moments from UConn guard Shabazz Napier, who has been tremendous at the NCAA tournament, like he has been for large stretches of the college career that will be coming to an end whenever the Huskies lost (or win it all).

Napier hit a buzzer-beater to send the Gators to loss

No. 2 of a season that hasn’t featured any other defeats since.

Napier’s made a habit of that and Florida head coach Billy Donovan is a fan.

“Well, Napier is a great player,” Donovan said earlier this week.
