Elite Eight Part I Done

So half the Final Four is in place with Ohio State pulling away from Memphis late to win 92-76 and UCLA benefiting from the fact Kansas could not hit layups won 68-55.  UCLA spoils the All #1 Seeds Party everyone was planning for after last night and also enjoyed playing two de facto home games in San Jose, CA.  Ohio State, which by all rights should be twice dead in this tournament, made all the plays they needed to make and left no doubt by the time the game came down to the three minute mark.

Now UCLA waits to see if they will either get a second chance at Florida or another matchup with Pac 10 fellow member Oregon.  Ohio State likewise waits to see if it will get a second chance at UNC, this time with Greg Oden or a possible meeting with Georgetown which would include a gigantic matchup of seven foot centers Oden and Hibbert.

    Defense will be key for the Heels. In every single one off our losses this year, Carolina has given up more than one point per possession and with the exception of the second VPI game, every single loss in conference involved numbers well over one point per possession to the opponent, in the 1.1 range. Going back to January 20, the offense has averaged more than one point per possession every single game, with Friday night’s game being the worst offensive performance by the Heels in months.

    Georgetown appears to me to be much less consistent than UNC. They have had a couple of really bad defensive games and some really great offensive ones. This game will either be close or a win by UNC handily. It is hard to see Georgetown running away. UNC wants to get the possessions as high as possible, which should result in a victory.
