Spartans and Tarheels:The Final Two!

Christian KeyContributor IApril 5, 2009

It's finally here! The final two teams play for the NCAA National Championship Monday night! North Carolina and Michigan State.

These two teams played last on December 3rd back in 2008 and the Tarheels trashed the Spartans 98-63.

But if anything I doubt this time the Spartans will be so easy because when UNC beat them Michigan State had just come off an eight game road trip and were probably more tired when facing the Heels.

The people to watch for this game for the Tarheels are of course Tyler Hansbrough looking for the only thing he hasn't broken and that's a National Championship ring. He is going to be hungry for that ring Monday. And of course Ty Lawson looking to finish his Tarheel season out strong with a championship also.

Not only will the Heels be coming strong, but don't count out the Spartans who have been a comeback story for this season. They will be playing for it all and just like they beat Uconn I think they could very well beat the Tarheels if they don't fall to the speed of Ty Lawson and Danny Green's tremendous three-point shooting in the tournament.
