Keys for the Huskies

1. SHARE THE WEALTH: The Gators seem to anticipate it being The Shabazz Napier Show, but the Huskies have to share the offensive wealth. DeAndre Daniels and Ryan Boatright are a good place to start, but getting Niels Giffey (just 3-for-13 on 3-pointers in the NCAAs) on track would help, too.

2. STAND YOUR GROUND: Florida forward Patric Young is chiseled like an NFL linebacker and scored 17 points with seven rebounds in the first game. The Huskies might not be able to stop him, but Phil Nolan, Amida Brimah and Tyler Olander need to try their best and have some type of paint presence.

3. HIT THE GLASS: Good things happen for the Huskies when they not only crash the boards on offense, but limit opponents to just one look at the basketball per possession. Daniels needs to jump in here and get eight to 10 boards.

4. LEVEL FIVE: It's Ollie's term for playing at a championship level, and the Huskies have played that way so far in the tournament. In a packed football stadium on national television, they can't forget what got them to the dance.
