Predictions: Final 4
Once again i will be sharing with you my March Madness picks but this time it will be for the Final Four.
There are many deserving teams but this year you will see 3 or possibly all 4 number one seeds make it to Indianapolis for the Final Four. But there is always the chance of that upset.
I do not think we will see any teams cruise into the finals. It will be a battle for all the top teams.
Kansas will cruise to the Final Four after beating Michigan State. Kansas has been ranked in the top 3 all season long and will continue to prove why.
They have one of the best big men in the country in Cole Aldrich and one of the better guards in Sherron Collins.
Kansas will go on to beat Syracuse and play West Virgina in the NCAA Finals where the Jayhawks will win their second championship in three years.
Syracuse will have a decently easy trip to the Final Four after beating Kansas State.
Syracuse is the best coached team in the country and might play the most unique defense. They love to run so defensive stops will be key to their success.
Unfortunately i have them loosing to Kansas in the Final Four.
In the minds of West Virginia nothing can stop them after their performance in the Big East Championship. I have them beating Kentucky in a very close game.
Kentucky just has too many young players who are focused on the next level to have the mind set to win it all this year.
If difference of the game is a point and the ball is is Da'Sean Butlers hands then game over. Butler already has 6 game winning shots this season and I predict that he will have one or two more this tournament.
Duke is looking for major redemption this year after many tournaments of disappointments and I think this is their year.
They will be led by their big three in Kyle Singler, Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith. Previous Duke teams did not have good big men but this year they are loaded with talented size.
The Plumlee brothers have done a great job along with center Brian Zoubek.
The Blue Devils will beat Baylor to advance to the final four.
