Monday, March 19, 2007March Madness Update
The first two rounds are over and most of the top teams are still in it. Let's take a look at who could make the run:
Florida looks pretty good right now. They had a tough game against Purdue, but they look to have the easiest run to the Final Four. Butler won't even challenge them (too small inside for Horford and Noah). Then they will have to play UNLV or Oregon. I just don't think either team can keep up with them.
Kansas looks almost unstoppable right now. They have incredible speed and can out run anybody. But as we saw in the two Texas games this year, they can also pound it out down low. They have talent deep onto the bench and the players are well rested due to 2 blowouts so far. My only concern with them is if they lose focus for a half and get behind too far
UCLA is a pretty good team, I just don't see them matching up with Kansas. I think Kansas will just wear them down. That should be a really good game if it happens.
UNC is a good team...I just don't think they have it. Tyler Hansbrough is a solid player, but I can't seem him playing nearly as well once he faces a good big man. So far he hasn't faced any.
Georgetown is my second pick to win it. They are incredibly efficient on both sides of the ball. They have a monster in the middle (7'2" Hibbert) who really has improved from this time last year. They have a superstar (Jeff Green) who can do pretty much everything. They also have solid players everywhere else on the team. I can easily see them running it. They really struggled against Boston College in the second round, but BC is a very good team. I see them losing to Kansas in the Finals
OSU is a very good team, but I just don't seem them making the run all the way. They have a tough Tennesee team to play, then they would play (most likely) Texas A&M after that. If they were to get past them, they would have to beat Georgetown in the Final Four. I just don't see all that happening. Although, I would love to see Oden vs. Hibbert!
I don't have much to say about them. They are good. I just have no idea which team will show up. Acie Law IV can take over any game though. I just can't see them pulling it off.
Not that good of a team...they have no chance.
So that's my rundown before the Sweet Sixteen.
I've got Kansas vs. Georgetown for the title as of now. Check back after the next round to see who is left!
