Final Four: Who Will Be Left Standing?
Apr 3, 2008
It’s been a long basketball season and now four teams are left standing:
University of North Carolina (36-2) – Led by All-American Tyler Hansbrough, aka “Psycho T,” the Tar Heels advance to the Final Four for the second time under coach Roy Williams after winning the national title in 2005.
Kansas (35-3) – The Jayhawks spoiled Davidson’s “Cinderella” story to make it to the Final Four for the 13th time in school history.
University of Memphis (37-1) – The Tigers rolled through the South Region into the team’s third Final Four appearance.
UCLA (35-3) – Head coach Ben Howland said this team is "by far the best" of the three teams he has brought to the Final Four in the past three years.
On Saturday, Memphis meets UCLA at 6: 07 p.m. followed by UNC and Kansas at approximately 8:47 p.m. Both games can be seen on WRAL-TV.
The championship game is Monday night.

UNC Why? Hansbrough, Lawson, Ellington, Green, Ginyard- Need I say more?
It's going to come down to UNC and Memphis. The game will go into overtime, and UNC will pull it out by a couple of free throws. This will happen because they are the strongest, most powerful team in the nation right now, they know how to draw fouls, and as someone else mentioned, they've lengthened their bench this season.
UNC & UCLA NC wins score 63-62 at the buzzer.
Memphis I say will lose against UCLA. UCLA is relentless with their defense and they are some big fellows who are fast and can shoot very well under pressure.
Kansas will lose to UNC by far. If the Heels can move down court fast enough, then Kansas will have no choice than to go home at the end of the game...with their heads pointing downward...as the Heel's score reaches towards the Carolina-blue high-sky. This game will be like Carolina-Arkansas, with the Heels dominating.
IF...UNC vs. UCLA then I think UCLA will take home the crown. That hurts saying that, cause I am for Carolina all the way. I hope I'm wrong, cause I', betting on Carolina with a grain of salt. They can do it, but it's not gonna be an easy game for them. UCLA is one tough team.
I forgot to say that I hope Lawson is well. I haven't read anything of late about his status. He was limping at the end of the game last weekend. If he goes; so does the Heels.
