NCAA Basketball Tournament is Down to Four

by Andrew Poloni
poloni@americajr.com

The final four is set for the NCAA basketball tournament, and with two one seeds and two number two seeds making it in, it appears that a Cinderella will miss this year’s ball.

Number two Georgetown will take on number one Ohio State, and number two UCLA will play number one Florida on Saturday.

While the 2007 tournament failed to produce a come out of nowhere, underdog story, the field did see four very good teams move into the semifinals to provide for three more sure to be great games.

All four remaining teams in the tourney have defeated good, solid teams along the way and really leave the championship wide open. The line in the Georgetown-OSU game on Saturday is currently even, and Florida is only a three-point favorite.

Both games also have interesting story lines. Florida and UCLA are set to play a rematch of last year’s final game, which Florida won to secure to the national championship.

The game between OSU and Georgetown will showcase two of the best big men in the country, with Georgetown’s Roy Hibbert going against OSU’s freshman sensation Greg Oden.

If you took AmericaJR’s advice during the tournament preview, then chances are your bracket is doing pretty well right now, giving you a decent shot at winning your office pool.

The sports staff successfully picked three out of the four final teams, and the final match-up of UCLA and Georgetown is still a very good possibility.

So AmericaJR is still going with Georgetown to win it all. The Hoyas looked impressive Sunday after coming back to beat a very deep North Carolina team in overtime.

If Georgetown plays this weekend like they did in the second half Sunday, there isn’t a team left in the tournament that may be able to stop them.
