Courtney, an alumnus of UConn Law School, represents Storrs, Conn., which is where UConn’s main campus is located. He has promised an assortment of eastern Connecticut treats to Wasserman Schultz if the Gators win Saturday evening.

The Gators are heavy favorites.
 
“Florida has looked strong in this year’s NCAA tournament, but we can’t forget the last team the Gators fell to this season: UConn,” he said. “The Gators have already gotten a taste of Shabazz Napier’s last-second heroics, and with him and Kevin Ollie leading this UConn team, I’m confident we’ll see them playing again Monday for the National Championship.”
 
If the Huskies win, Wasserman Schultz, a Gator herself, will deliver platters from Burrito Bros. Taco Co., a local favorite in Gainesville, Fla.
 
“As a Gator fan who bleeds orange and blue, I’m thrilled our guys have made it back to the Final Four of the Big Dance,” she said. “Unlike their last game versus UConn, the Gators are playing at full strength and with legendary coach Billy Donovan at the helm, Florida is just one Husky road-kill away en route to their third basketball championship.”
