    Default The Official Final Four Mega Game Discussion Thread - Saturday, April 2

    Both games are on TBS:

    3:09pm PT = (2) Villanova (2) Oklahoma
    5:49pm PT = (10) Syracuse (1) North Carolina

    Who wins and why? I am pretty sure that North Carolina is going to beat Syracuse. I know that OU blasted Nova earlier this year, but the game was played on a military base thousands of miles away. Nova just coughed up a fur ball. I don't believe OU will win if it just becomes the "Buddy Show." Other guys are going to have to step up because Nova is playing so well right now and with great discipline. I'm not sure if OU would be in the final 4 if they had played in any other region besides the west. The west was terribly weak.

    Rooting for OU, for Spengler and my BIL.

    UNC/Syracuse tiff to decide "best ethically challenged basketball program". SMU and Louisville withdrew from this year's tournament. As long as UL has Pitino, they're always in the conversation.

    i expect UNC to beat Syracuse comfortably

    The other game should be more interesting. Two jump-shooting teams in a cavernous dome. I think OU is a it more reliant on shots falling but has the best overall player in the game. VU has the best big man in the game in Ochefu, and is probably a slightly better defensive team. Nova favored by 2 makes sense. Simplistically, i think it comes down to which team adjusts and shoots the ball better, with the ability to control the ball and limit turnovers being another big key --- if shots arent falling, the team that better gets out in transition and isnt as reliant on half court execution should move on

    i dont like either of their chances against UNC on monday, assuming they do advance

    I think we will see an old school Big East game between Syracuse and Villanova for the title on Monday night.

    'Cuse is on a roll with no expectations or pressure. They lost to UNC by 11 in the Carrier Dome and by 5 at Chapel Hill..they will not lose a third time as the Tar Heels will feel the pressure of expectations and cave.

    Villanova just looked like a team of destiny vs Kansas. Seemed like they believed they would win the game and always made big shots or defensive stops when needed. The fact they beat Kansas tells me a LOT about Villanova. They will beat Oklahoma.
    It is their time....their team...I just get to watch. - Bartruff1

    They are playing in a dome with bad shooting sight lines. Whichever teams can shoot the best from the outside should advance to the final. OU vs. VU should be interesting like cbbfanatic said.

    Especially the dome they will be playing at. We all remember last year's sweet 16 at Reliant Stadium. There is a track record of bad shooting percentages in that building compared to other domes.

    My god the opening is horrible. I realize that CBS wants this to be their Super Bowl, but could they retain a shred of dignity?

    The 3D graphics on the court are used by some pro team like bulls and Cavs.......I like it.

    Nova over OK
    UNC over Cuse.

    The lighting is distracting......it's a reflection from the projection screen over head and to much yellow and shadows.

    I wondered what that was. It's bad.

    Yes, I know. That's why I was a little turned off since theoretically it's still supposed to be "NCAA" - but maybe I'm just getting to be the old guy yelling at clouds.

    If you want to see the coolest version, and I think where it all began, cannot beat this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSCx2DldWfo

    Good for Nova. I'm done hearing about Buddy Hield.

    All the CBS analysts are on a first name basis with "Buddy."

    Love Buddy but I catch your drift. The media just latches on to a story.
    But I still love his game and expect it will translate to the NBA.

    Nothing to do with the kid. Even Reggie was saying how "Buddy" can pull game out. CBS is like the Oklahoma home broadcasting crew. Sad. Football $$$$$$$$.
