Michigan State Spartans vs. Connecticut Huskies

The first game of the Final Four will host two familiar faces in the Michigan State Spartans and the Connecticut Huskies. The Spartans are making their 5th Final Four visit in the last 11 years which is simply remarkable. Connecticut was a big favorite out of the West bracket and they backed up the hype well playing solid basketball throughout the tournament. Michigan State appears to be playing their best basketball of the season and that should make for a great game. The grudge match will be a classic battle especially on the inside in the paint. The Huskies and the Spartans both are tremendous teams in terms of rebounding and scoring down low. Centers Goran Suton of Michigan State and Hasheem Thabeet for Connecticut should be in for an intense match-up. The team that can really execute drives to the basket and establish presence on the boards will hold a huge advantage considering the most of these two teams production this season has come from the paint.

However, the Golden Eagles of Marquette will be attempting the same task as these two teams are apart of a four way tie atop the Big East standings that feature in four nationally ranked Top 10 teams. Marquette schedules is brutal with no. 1 Pittsburgh and no. 6 Louisville to immediately follow Wednesday’s showdown, but they still have hopes of a regular season title as well.

However, the Panthers have won 5 straight games and they were the nation’s former number 1 earlier this season and they will make an attempt to take down the Huskies to get back on top of the Big East standings.
