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.

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

My Final Four Preview and picks

My Final Four Preview and picks

well this has been a great NCAA tournament so far. UAB has its run, by upsetting 3 seeded Iowa State. Kentucky continuing its pursuit to perfection and a championship. But we have 4 left standing, and it all takes place in Indianapolis, IN. There has been a lot of controversy over the new law they just passed. I will not get into on the matter of stupidity that this law has caused. In the Duke-Michigan State matchup, Duke is a good team and does not make many mistakes. The Spartans will need to bring there A game in order to upset the Blue Devils, and not have so many turnovers. In the Kentucky-Wisconsin matchup, Wisconsin could give Kentucky some problems in the post (where it counts the most). The impact player Frank Kaminski has been the talk of this year’s tournament. If Kentucky doesn’t stop him, they could be going home a little early.

Here are my Final four picks:

Duke over Michigan State

Kentucky over Wisconsin

Look for my championship preview and pick just before Monday, enjoy the Final four
