The Final Four kicks off tonight with the UCLA Championships playing the Memphis Arrest Warrants. Memphis, after struggling a bit in the first weekend of the tournament, crushed everything in its path in the second weekend, producing two quality wins and rolling into the Final Four. UCLA also handled their business on the way to San Antonio, although dispatching Western Kentucky and Xavier doesnt exactly strike fear into the hearts of most Americans. I picked UCLA to win the title at the beginning of the season and the beginning of the tournament, so I will stick with it. But of the four teams, they are likely the shakiest going into this weekend. Still, I will take Love and Collison in the end and UCLA winning 76-71.
Regardless of who you have in this game though, the videos of Kevin Love taking half court and full court shots are unbelievable. He did this last week at the regionals and did it again yesterday at practice. If you have ever tried to do this with two hands, you will realize just how strong he is. Worth checking out…..
