Four worthy finalist remain, who will be left standing?

As the scene shifts to the motor city and sixty one schools are reduced to keg drinkin’, cheerleader chasin’, finals fakin’ students, four are still sweating (or playing craps) with a chance to cut the nets, NC, Nova’, State, and Uconn. The number one seeds, NC and UCONN, everyone expected to be here. The ‘Heels have spend the most time on top of the polls has any team this year (often unanimous #1), and increasing their legend as appearing in the most final fours. Uconn was also expected to be here with their potent inside outside game, but could are susceptible to foul trouble then they are much more manageable. Then there’s Nova, whom after a shaky first game have looked as good as anyone, but the most balanced team still dancin’. However with all of this talent, muscle, and speed, the great equalizer will be 50 of the 70 thousand fans in attendance cheering for the team that will be sleeping in their own beds 57 miles away. The Michigan St. Spartans will be hosting this years final four in one of the greatest examples of ‘the luck of the draw’ known to mankind, or just the greed of the NCAA to host the finals in a place so close to one campus. No matter how many tickets were allotted to each school by the time the final buzzer was sounded, they were all ready waiting in line for tics. Now it’s State’s tournament to lose as having more people screaming for them than do the Lions, Izzo knows even outmanned they could still be the team to beat. Who is your pick to win it all? Let us know here and in the NCAA Chat Rooms and Team Rooms.
