Final Four Preview
Games played, brackets busted, nets cut. It’s all part of the annual Madness that comes with early spring. After 64 games played, countless brackets ruined, and many dreams broken we are left with only four. Villanova, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Syracuse. Three games remain to determine this year's college basketball National Champion. The favorite going into these last three games is 1-seed North Carolina. The Tar Heels will take their 19th trip to the Final Four, this year they head to Houston. Coached by legend Roy Williams and led by Senior Forward Brice Johnson, North Carolina looks win only their fifth national title. The next team to look out for is Lon Kruger’s Oklahoma Sooners. The Sooners have boomed their way into the national title picture with the help of Senior Guard Buddy Hield. Hield who averages 25 points per game looks to not only win the National Title, but to also win the Wooden award, college basketball’s Heisman trophy. The Sooners will take on the Wildcats of Villanova. Villanova has breezed through the tournament with solid team play and above average shooting from beyond the arc. No one person stands out for the Wildcats but they are led by 6-11’’ Senior Forward Daniel Ochefu. Ochefu leads the team with 8 rebounds per game. The final team in this years Final Four is everyone's bracket buster. The Cinderella story, Syracuse. The Fighting Orange look to shock the nation and win only their second national title. Led by another legendary coach in Jim Boeheim and Senior Forward Michael Gbinije, the Fighting Orange must play the role of David in trying to take down the Goliath that is UNC. As these four teams take to Reliant Stadium in Houston, this will be a Final Four like no other. This year's college basketball season has proved to us that anyone can lose. Watch for the intensity of Syracuse as they look to do what no other 10 seed has ever done. Watch for Villanova's 3-point attack as they attempt to take down the Sooners and Buddy Hield. But mostly importantly witness what will be the last three games of what has been an amazing NCAA Basketball season.
