Michigan vs. Syracuse: Preview and Predictions for 2013 Final Four Matchup

Unless you live in a state that starts with the letter "K," you're probably of the opinion that Syracuse-Michigan is this weekend's best Final Four matchup.

Both teams come to Atlanta as No. 4 seeds, but observers will tell you the talent level on each squad exceeds that relatively modest rank.

Michigan features AP Player of the Year Trey Burke and a supporting cast stocked with NBA-caliber talent. Syracuse finished last season 34-3 and has an equally gifted floor general in Michael Carter-Williams.

Both teams began the season ranked in the AP Top 10. Both suffered through late-season slumps. And both, most importantly, have reasserted their dominance in the postseason.

So, who has the edge coming into Saturday?

Answers ahead.
