Two teams are left and after tonight, one will emerge victorious as the best team in college basketball. Here’s my prediction for tonight’s game:
Wisconsin took down what may just be one of the best college basketball teams to ever take the floor by beating Kentucky on Saturday night. The quest for perfection is now over, but the focus needs to be on the Badgers rather than the Wildcats losing for the first time in almost a calendar year. This team is really good. Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky have provided the leadership to make sure that Wisconsin perseveres in almost every situation that they face.
Meanwhile, Duke destroyed Michigan State in their Final Four matchup to make it to this game. Despite trailing early on, the Blue Devils turned on the jets and put up 81 points on what was one of the best defensive teams in the country. Led by powerful freshmen Jahlil Okafor and Justice Winslow, Duke has looked like one of the best teams in the country all season long.
Saturday night showed that senior experience is superior to having a bunch of diaper-dandies. I expect that theme to continue tonight, and that is why I am predicting that Wisconsin will go home with the national title.
