Talk about your top-heavy Final Four! 2 #1 seeds will play 2 #2 seeds in the National semifinals for the right to play for the NCAA basketball championship. Let’s take a look at the matchups:
The Bruins defense has been dominating throughout the tournament, and showed up big time in shutting down Kansas to win the West Regional. Arron Afflalo and Darren Collison are leading the Bruins into the rematch of last years Championship game against Florida, who dispatched Oregon with clutch shooting and rebounding at the end of the game.
The Hoyas are back in the Final Four after 22 years, and yet they look like the same team lead by Patrick Ewing. Stout defense and strong inside play got them past North Carolina in overtime. They’ll need every bit of that defense when they take on Ohio State. While teams pack the zone to crowd Greg Oden, Mike Conley Jr. and Ron Lewis continue their awesome guard play with timely outside shots. We’ll pulling for the Hoyas, but Ohio State has too much talent.
