So here it is, the next to last step for all the marbles, 4 great teams looking to move on to Mondays final. Who's it going to be?
Gerogetown vs. Ohio State
Georgetown looks to return to it's glory days of the mid 80's with a win against a young but very effective Ohio St. team featuring the Talented Greg Oden who most feel is one and done as far as college goes. This one should be a great one, as two true big men in Oden and Hibbert look control the middle and help their team achieve victory. This one will be a doozy to watch and I'm looking for Georgetown to win.
Here is the Georgetown/Ohio St. Game Preview.
UCLA vs. Florida
UCLA looks to avenge it's embarrassing loss to the Gators last year in the title game and get back to the title game this year in their hunt for title #12 and #100 for the school. Florida looks to repeat their win from last year and move on for a shot to be the first team since Duke in 92' to make it 2 in-a-row. I would look for both teams to a very physical game and while UF has the better overall team they have yet to play their best game in this tournament. Horford and Noah will do well on the inside but will it be enough. As much as it pains me to say it I think UCLA wins, but this game will be VERY close.
