With that said I think UNC's size will be too much for Oregon and then too much Gonzaga.

Gonzaga is actually bigger than UNC at every position except SF. They should have the ability to limit UNC's Oreb advantage and as the better shooting team ultimately prevail. They'll now lose to SCar tomorrow night.

They are by physical height but UNC plays bigger than Gonzaga does. I agree Gonzaga is one of the few teams who height-wise can match up with UNC, but the ability and use of that height is quite a bit different.

UNC tried at the end to give Oregon a chance with 4 straight missed free throws, but Oregon declined to take any of their gifts.

Both games we entertaining and went about as expected, though I didnt think South Carolina was going to fully comeback and make a game of it once they got down big. However, that is how South Carolina played all tournament.

RE: NCAA Tournament Discussion
Gonzaga has tended to let teams back in the game so far in the tournament, save their first. I think I heard the announcers during their second game against Northwestern wonder if they pull back the throttle because they didn't want to beat teams in conference play too badly and it's carried over. In any rate, one of the big questions facing the Zags was how they'd handle the pressure of closing out close games since they didn't face all that many during the season. Unlike my nerves, since they're my champ, they've seemed unfazed. Hoping for a good one tonight and the "original" Cinderella to finally leave the ball with the prince.

It should indeed be a dandy tonight. Makes no real difference to me but if picking between UNC and Gonzaga, I am wanting Gonzaga to win every single time. For the sake of our challenge, go UNC!

RE: NCAA Tournament Discussion
Zags and Karnowski miss way too many shots in close, costs them a title. Second half was horridly officiated.

Congrats Dan on winning Always a Dragon pool.

Go me. Was a great game though even if Gonzaga unraveled right at the end.
