Quick Final Four Predictions
With just under two hours before the Final Four gets going tonight, here are my predictions for who will play on Monday night for the 2010 NCAA title game.
Butler Vs. Michigan State:
It's simple. Michigan State is beaten up and is here on guts and coaching. Butler is here because they're actually really good, and this game is being played only a few miles way from their campus. I like Butler to take the mid-major conferences to the title game on Monday night, an accomplishment that may not happen again for a long, long time.
Butler 75, Michigan State 68
Duke vs. West Virginia:
This is the game of the night. West Virginia is a big, bruising team. Duke has the brains and team talent. I like Duke to make the plays down the stretch to set up Monday night. Point guard Jon Scheyer and two-guard Nolan Smith will make enough plays offensively and defensively to put this one away.
Duke 80, WVU 74
