Finals Time

So the truth is that if Villanova shoots 71% from the field tonight like they did Saturday, they are going to win the game. That is just an amazing night from the field. But assuming they don’t match that performance, they will have their hands full.

Quite simply, UNC is very hard to stop. If you watched the Syracuse game, when was the last time before it that you saw a team playing a zone lose from the inside-out? Teams attacking a zone usually have to hit jumpers to pull the zone out and then pound it inside against a spread-out defense. Carolina flipped that script, pounding the ball inside repeatedly and easily.

That’s going to be the script tonight for Carolina. Get it inside to Meeks and Johnson, control the glass, and watch good things happen. I think they will, and I predict a sixth banner raised to the rafters of the Dean Dome this fall.
