Half my bracket is still alive, where I have Texas Tech vs Michigan State in the Final Four. And I predicted Michigan State to win. I'll definitely stick with that. And I have Michigan State to win it all. Still confident in that as well.
For the other part.. I had NC vs Tenn.. so way off there. But that said, gimme Virginia by a good margin.
Score predictions for the hell of it:
Virginia 76, Auburn 67
Michigan State 67, Texas Tech 63
Here's my reasoning. VT has avg 66.75 points in the tournament. But in their last game they had to score 80 to beat Purdue. So I think they can outpace their avg to keep up with Auburn who has avg 85.25 in the tournament. Auburn has allowed 75.75 so they don't have a strong defense. Virginia's D is far better, allowing only 57.75. Something has to give between good D and strong offense. I expect Virginia to show up.
For the other game, here goes.. Michigan State has avg 73.5 points so far. And allowed 61.25 per game. Texas Tech's #s are 72 on avg scoring and allowing just 57 points per game on avg. Seeing as how TT has the best defense in the game but Gonzaga was able to put up 69 on them, I'm thinking Michigan State gets close to that. But if you look at it Mich State's defense is also very good. So this should be a relatively lower scoring game and a close one.
