While this is coming a little late, I am still confident in my tourney picks from last week. In the Final Four, I picked Duke playing Arizona and Oregon playing North Carolina. From this round, Duke and North Carolina will advance and play for the fourth time this season. Unlike the last matchup though, North Carolina will avoid foul trouble and avenge their loss, winning the National Championship.
North Carolina has had an up and down season this year moving around the Top 25. Their 27-7 record and the top spot in the ACC helped them to a number one seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament. The talented, veteran roster is playing their best basketball of the season right now, and with the memory of last year’s tough loss in the finals motivating and driving them, the Tar Heels are set up for a championship run.
