Elite Eight of '08
MIDWEST. 10 Davidson .vs. 1 Kansas
As you all know Davidson's Stephen Curry has scored 103 points. He has demolished his opponents lately. Davidson has reminded me of George Mason's miraculous run a couple of years ago. If Davidson wants to have any chance they need to play run and gun down the court and get the ball off to Curry. Stephen Curry is the son of NBA sharpshooter Del Curry. We all would love to see Kansas lose but Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers, and Darell Arthur are way to dangerous. Bill Self has gotten only as far as the Elite Eight as coach of Kansas. Is this the year for Kansas or will Cinderella continue the run?
SOUTH. 1 Memphis.vs.2 Texas A wonderful match-up between Chris Douglas-Roberts and Derrick Rose vs DJ Augustin and AJ Abrams. Texas has been tested in the tournament (Stanford) and lost a wonderful game to Kansas before the tournament. If DJ Augustin can get hot and stay in the game I have the feeling the Texas is going to the Final Four.
WEST. 3 Xavier .vs. 1 UCLA This game I don't think this will even be close. UCLA right now is the biggest threat in the country. Darren Collison, Russell Westbrook, and an insane superstar Kevin Love will demolish Xavier.
EAST. 1 UNC .vs. 3 Louisville
Wow! Rick Pitino .vs. Roy Williams. The best coaching match-up since Coach K .vs. Roy Williams. I think that UNC as big of a threat as UCLA. This game won't be as good as it looks. UNC will go to San Antonio!
I think that the title matchup is Love and Company .vs. Hansbrough, Ellington, and Lawson in San Antonio.It will be an interesting turnout.
