0 Final Four Predictions

By Shaee Flatt

Without bragging, I’d just like to say my bracket is better than 91 percent of the peoples’ reading this. (Or 91 percent of people who used ESPN). That being said, I missed a crap load of games, and only correctly picked two of the final four teams. However, I am restarting with only three games left! Let’s hope I nail this one.

Louisville vs. Wichita State
In my original bracket, I had Louisville losing in the National Championship game to Indiana, now I have them losing to Wichita State in the Final Four. I originally had Wichita in the Elite 8, but watching them in the tournament, they have a very good basketball team. While “Play for Ware” story is great and all, it has to be pretty tough for the Cardinals to play with. I don’t think Louisville brings their A game on Saturday, and I expect Wichita State to “shock” everyone and earn a berth in the National Championship game.

Michigan vs. Syracuse
Syracuse has dismantled everyone with their devastating 2-3 zone thus far, including the team I thought would win it all, Indiana. Meanwhile, Michigan, and National Player of the Year, Trey Burke, have done the same to their opponents. They’ve crushed everyone they’ve played, with the exception of top seeded Kansas, who they defeated in what was probably the game of the tournament so far. This one is very tough for me to call, but I like Michigan to move on here. I think they find a way to beat the zone, and move on to play Shockers in the National Championship.

National Championship
Michigan vs. Wichita State
Like Butler two years ago, I think Wichita State's Cinderella run ends in the National Title game. In the end, I think Burke and the rest of the Wolverines are too much for the Shockers in the tournaments’ final game and I expect Michigan to be cutting down the nets when everything is all said and done.
