COMMENT: Donovan has overhauled the program with his dogged recruiting efforts and up-tempo system. He also has proven to be a solid bench coach and motivator in preparing his young team for the physical and emotional challenges of the NCAA Tournament. He is the common thread that ties together a diverse collection of athletes. The players' unfailing belief in Donovan and his system has allowed the Gators to overcome their lack of NCAA experience.
