Battle of Ones
For the first time ever, all four number one seeds have made it to the Final Four site. Hopefully, the matchups will reflect the parity in the seed numbers. We have two teams who've been to this stage frequently of late, UCLA and North Carolina, and two who are making their first trips under their current coaches, Memphis and Kansas. Talent-wise, the advantage goes to Memphis (if only because UCLA's bench isn't as deep) and barely to UNC. In terms of coaching, UCLA and Carolina. In terms of experience, UNC and UCLA. I think experience and coaching are going to go a long way at this stage since the four teams are so even. My picks for tonight are the Heels and Bruins.
