North Carolina and Michigan State move on

Ford field was rocking during yesterdays first game between UCONN and Michigan St.. But it was one of those games where one team was so close but the losing team could not have a successfull possesion. That was the story of this one. Michigan St. kept on pulling away, but the Huskies wouldnt go away. But, they wore out at the end and fell. Giving coach Calhoun his first ever final four loss.

After that one the crowd was exited for a second game. North Carolina against Villanova. The game started close but as we neared the end of the first the Heels pulled away. Mid-way through the second they were getting leads like, 17 or 13. At one point the Cats only had 6 points in 8 minutes. Scottie Reynolds than ended that by trying to get his team back. But it just wasnt enough to send the Heels home.

In the end Connecticut and Villanova packed there bags back home. But North Carolina and Michigan St. will play one more game until they go home. The seniors of these two teams are either the lukist, or the least luky. How would it feel winning the national championship in your last game in the NCAA? But how would it feel to lose the champioship in your last NCAA game?

Connecticut-Michigan State

                                                                 When Connecticut has the Ball

With Hasheem Thabeet in the lane, the Huskies wont be scared to take it in. But Michigan St. can't just focus on Thabeet and inside play when the Huskies have AJ Price and Jeff Adrien playing the outside. But luckilly for Michigan St. they have great defenders in Gary Suton and Kalin Lucas.

                                                                When Michigan St. has the Ball

The Spartans inside plans will get kiled by Thabeet on the inside with his beastlly size. But they still have Kalin Lucas who avarages 14 points a game. So hes goanna have to pick up the slack to win this game for the Spartans.

                                                                                 Overall

I think that Thabeet and co. will hold there defense. And go on to win this one and play North Carolina in the Championship.

Lets Go Huskies!

As you probablly know, usall powerhouse Georgetown is the usall Gtown team, but with out the power. But as you look at this years rankings you see that number 1 ranked Connecticut has one loss. And thats against the Hoyas. So when UCONN wins, it gives Georgetown a better resume to make the tourny. They also have beat Syracuse. So this year, I will no longer say Hoya Saxa, I will say Hoya Huskie.
