Friday's games were, three out of four anyway, blowouts.Â Louisville utterly destroyed Arizona, 103-64, and it might not have been that close.Â Oklahoma beat Syracuse, 84-71, but had a 27 point lead in the second half. And UNC took out Gonzaga, 98-77.
Louisville will get Michigan State, a winner over Kansas, 67-62, thus ending the possibility of a rematch between UNC and KU, which would have been compelling.
On Saturday, Mizzou plays UConn and Villanova takes on Pitt.Â We think Mizzou will win - 7-3 Hasheem Thabeet isn't nearly as imposing in a game that frantic - and Villanova will knock off Pitt.
And of course on Sunday, Jeff Capel will lead his Oklahoma Sooners against UNC. That should be fun.
