My Final four Preview + Picks

My Final four Preview + Picks

Well its been an outstanding tournament with teams that had no business being in the field of 68. Syracuse is a great example of they should not have been in. I was stunned at the situation, now granted they have beaten teams that should have made the final four. Jim Boeheim has done a great coaching job, but is this better than the 2003 team that won it all? We will have to find out after this weekend concludes. As for Villanova, i knew they were going to be great in this tourney, and they have proven me right. Both North Carolina and Oklahoma have done well in spite of facing some opponents that have given them a significant challenge along the way. So here is my picks for the final four:


Syracuse over North Carolina

Villanova over Oklahoma



there you have it from Houston no less. Now its time to look forward to the championship game on monday. I should have a preview on that as well.

My National Basketball Championship Pick

My National Basketball Championship Pick

well its finally here, the end to another college basketball season. Duke vs. Wisconsin, now how many had this match up in there brackets?? I didn’t at all, not in my bracket at least. Both teams have had an outstanding season, only suffering in a few defeats throughout the season. This past Saturday Duke destroyed Michigan State, who had no answer for Duke’s best player Jamil Okofar. Wisconsin kept Kentucky when it counted the most, late in the 2nd half with untimely turnovers and missed opportunities. I believe Duke has too much star power for Wisconsin. The Badgers can only do so much, but it won’t be enough.

My Pick: Duke gets it done over Wisconsin in unique fashion
