Michigan and Louisville are getting ready to play for the title. It seems as if the matchup favors Michigan. After beating a tough Syracuse team, they seem to have the momentum. Louisville is no joke themselves, they beat a strong Wichata State team.
Louisville is a strong defensive team, that overwhelms with pressure defense. Petting Siva is very physical guard, in my opinion the offense goes through him. Russian Smith is the better scorer and shooter but the team goes as Siva goes. Dieng should have a big defensive game, blocking a few shots. Of course Rick Pitino is a great coach, just inducted into the hall of fame. The main weakness for Louisville is outside shooting.
Michigan has at least 4 guys on the floor who could score 20 points any night. Trey Burke won the national player of the year, although he didn’t play like it the other night. Hardaway Jr. and Stauskus can both shoot from outside. Glenn Davis III is a good shooter playing out of position as a power forward. Mitchell Mcgary has played incredibly in the tournament. He had a double double the other night with at least 6 assists and 3 blocks. Bielien as coach, I really don’t care for. Michigans big problem is rebounding.
Louisville will get off to a slow start, they will make it close late. But Michigan wins 71-67. Congratulations Wolverines.
