It all has come down to this!!
In less than 12 hours, 1 seed Gonzaga Bulldogs will take on 1 seed North Carolina Tar Heels. Both teams have had games which were true nail biters. Both teams have had really good regular seasons, with the Bulldogs only losing one game this year. It is going to be a great game tonight because both teams have looked really good in the tourney and both deserve to be the last two teams to be standing
Gonzaga almost had hiccups against Northwestern in the second round and again on Saturday against South Carolina. They have survived and advanced all the way to the championship game, they will be a force to be reckoned with tonight. For many years, Gonzaga has had really good regular seasons but not been able to do the job in the tourney. They have made it to the Final Four for the first time in program history this season, finally starting to silence some of their doubters. Gonzaga was the best team for the most part of the regular season and are 40 minutes away from being the best team in the tourney as well.
This is deja vu for North Carolina, they lost in the championship game at the buzzer last season. They had great first three games in the tourney, before being faced with very difficult competition in their last two. They were able to beat Kentucky and Oregon and they look like the odds on favorite to cutting down the nets tonight. They were my pick to win the tourney in my bracket and I really hope they make me rich tonight.
I went perfect in my picks on Saturday and hopefully that trend continues now that Oregon has finally been eliminated.
Pick- North Carolina over Gonzaga
The Tar Heels will be cutting down the nets tonight, right after one shining moment is played
