Michigan State Spartans vs. North Carolina Tarheels

The National Championship game is set for Monday night after an intense round of Final Four action on Saturday. The Michigan State Spartans pulled away from the Connecticut Huskies 82-73 pulling off their second straight underdog type victory in front of what you can call a home crowd in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday. The Spartans have absolutely been superb on the glass and with some big help from Kalin Lucas and Raymar Morgan they were able to handle the Huskies convincingly. The Spartans will meet up with the nation’s most popular pick the North Carolina Tarheels. The Tarheels sport the best offense in America that really shined through in their runaway win over Villanova 83-69. North Carolina had control of the game from start to finish and their ability to score points quickly has been unchallenged so far in the Tournament. However, the Michigan State Spartans will use what is likely to be the biggest crowd in National Championship history to their advantage since most in attendance will be wearing green. Hopefully that will be the difference in helping the Spartans slow down the Tarheels offense and provide an exciting Championship game.

North Carolina Tarheels vs. Villanova Wildcats

The North Carolina Tarheels and the Villanova Wildcats will take the floor in the second game of the Final Four this Saturday night in what will definitely be an exciting basketball game. These two teams are fast pace, fly around the ball, and flat out hustle all over the court. If you want to see all out basketball then do not miss this one. The North Carolina Tarheels have long claimed the most talented team in America with so many weapons on the offensive side of the court. All five starters’ average at least 10 points per game which is very rare among the college ranks. However, they will meet a Villanova team that is perhaps one of the most talented starting line-ups they have battled all season. The Wildcats should be able to match the speed of the Tarheels and provide some tenacious defense that could give North Carolina some problems especially if they do not come out shooting well. The Tarheels may be everyone’s pick to win the game, but Villanova has all the ingredients to pull off a win and continue to shock the college basketball world as they have done over the past few weeks.

No. 1 North Carolina Tarheels vs. No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners

Two of the most prominent teams from the regular season will take center court on Sunday afternoon in a big Elite Eight match-up. The North Carolina Tarheels are among all four remaining number one seeded teams who have yet to be beaten in the NCAA Tournament. However, they will take on the Oklahoma Sooners who have been playing extremely well this Sunday in a fight to determine who moves on to the Final Four. Both teams enter the game coming off impressive performances in the sweet sixteen. North Carolina took down Gonzaga by 21 points while Oklahoma took down Syracuse 84-71. The Tarheels have long been considered the most talented team in America, but they will take on what most consider the best player in America that is Blake Griffin and the Sooners. Will Griffin make another marvelous performance to take down the Tarheels or will North Carolina’s star studded lineup be too much to handle?

North Carolina State Wolfpack at No. 3 North Carolina Tarheels

The No. 3 ranked North Carolina Tarheels will host inner-state rival North Carolina State in Wednesday night hoops action. These two schools have a long history with over 200 plus meetings in their historic rivalry even though the last few years have been dominated by North Carolina. North Carolina State has really had some struggles this season, but they scored a big upset against Wake Forest and they will attempt to do the same against another North Carolina school in the Tarheels. North Carolina on the other hand started off the year very strong before hitting a few bumps in the road. However, since the Tarheels have regained their championship caliber style and appear to be one of the best teams in the country. The Tarheels have had some close encounters with these type of mediocre ACC opponents this year like their close 69-65 win over Miami on Sunday and they will attempt to avoid an embarrassing upsets on their home floor.
