2009 is over. Who was the team of the decade?

Now that the 2009 tourney is over, I have a topic of discussion.

Who is the team/program of the decade?  In the 90's, it was pretty much a toss-up between Duke and Kentucky.  Who is it for the 2000's?

Carolina can make a strong case with two national titles and (I believe) two other Final Four appearances.  However, they also had an NIT appearance and an 8-20 debacle in that stretch of time.

Florida played for a title in 2000 and won back-to-back national titles and then followed it up with two stellar recruiting classes that went to the NIT.

Arizona and UCLA were consistently good, but never closed the deal on a title.

Duke started the decade strong but has been in a very un-Duke like funk for the last 4 years or so.

UConn was strong, but only has one title this decade and a couple of down years.

Given that information, I will say its a toss up for Florida and Carolina... but neither team has as strong a claim to it as teams from the 90's had.  Carolina is definitely better poised for dominance in the 2010's.

Thoughts?
