Here's how Ohio State should approach Florida

Here are a few quick thoughts as we head into the national championship game, a rematch of a regular-season meeting between Florida and Ohio State.

In the second half of Saturday night's national semifinal win over UCLA, Florida came very close to showing us its A game, a level of play the Gators reached Dec. 23 against Ohio State.

That afternoon, the Gators hit virtually everything they put up, shooting almost 60 percent from the field and making 9 of 18 from 3-point range. Taurean Green scored 24 points, Corey Brewer chipped in 18 and the Gators outrebounded Ohio State 43-25 in a fashion very similar to the tip-dunk fest that was the second half against UCLA.
