Scouting the Final Four teams
April 2, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
USA TODAY Sports, along with help from some opposing coaches, breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of the Final Four teams.
What they do best: Though Florida is great both defensively and offensively -- "They can beat you on either end," Georgia coach Mark Fox says -- the Gators' biggest strength is defense. Florida's defense is the most efficient in the nation, particularly good at holding opponents to low shooting percentages on two-point field goals. Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who coached Billy Donovan at Providence, hired him as an assistant and remains a close friend, says, "No one knows Billy the Kid better than me, and the one that sticks out with this team is how well this team is playing at the defensive end. This team really understands how to guard. They're a veteran team."
