Two of the bluest of the blue bloods (literally) will be facing off in Newark on Sunday. It’s Kentucky-North Carolina. What the hell else do I really have to say?
Michigan State keeps defying the odds and now will play North Carolina in the 2009 NCAA Mens Basketball Championship game in front of a decidedly partisan Detroit crowd. The Tar Heels are the most talented team in America, and have had championship tunnel-vision all season long; can Tom Izzo and the Spartans pull out one more magic victory?
Villanova shocked the world in 1985 by playing the “perfect game” to beat heavily favored Georgtown. The Wildcats head into Saturday night’s Final Four game against North Carolina as a heavy underdog again. Can Villanova capture the 1985 magic for yet another magical upset victory?
North Carolina is starting to look a juggernaut on a date with Final Four destiny now that Ty Lawson is back healthy and leading the attack. Oklahoma has the incomparable Blake Griffin to try to counter the Tar Heels, but will it be enough for Oklahoma to move on to Detroit?
Mark Few and Gonzaga will find themselves in an underdog role again on Friday night when they take on North Carolina. The Tar Heels have Ty Lawson back leading their attack and are a heavy favorite. Can the Zags pull off the upset and knock off UNC?
