Quick & Easy Final Four Picks

Posted on April 4, 2009. Filed under: Basketball, NCAA | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I say this will be quick and easy because most of you who are reading sports blogs in your spare time must have an already sophisticated knowledge of the game, so I won’t undermine your intelligence with a ton of information you already know, for instance:

No matter what anyone says to be politically correct, Villanova is the perceived underdog against North Carolina.

Goran Suton will have to be as effective, if not even more so than he was against Louisville to beat Hasheem Thabeet and Jeff Adrien under the rim, for Michigan State to win.

Plus I am in a hurry, so here you go:

Ty Lawson is in a zone and Villanova is collectively focused and playing insanely good basketball.  They had to be to outrebound Pitt.  Who does that?  Villanova . . . BUT I also think North Carolina is on a mission having lost in the Final Four last year . . . 
PICK:  NORTH CAROLINA 84 – 79

This game will come down to efficient offense since both teams are stout defensively.  If Michigan State turns the ball over, Uconn has a crazy transition game with a red hot Stanley Robinson but they also need smart play from AJ Price and Craig Austrie, who both turned the ball over more than they assisted against Missouri.  Eventhough the Spartans are playing in their backyard, I just think Uconn will beat them on the free throw line, and that tends to make the difference in high stakes games . . . Ask Pitt. 
PICK: CONNECTICUT 73-68

By the way, you can probably guess by my commentary that I am still bitter about Pitt . . . Sink your FREE throws!

I’ll get over it . . .
