And the winner is ... Memphis
April 7, 2008 - Neil Rudel
To put a cap on the NCAA Tournament, even though I've been wrong most of the way, I'm taking Memphis tonight.
Here's the logic: Kansas was extremely sharp in sidelining North Carolina. I don't know what was more impressive -- the Jayhawks bolting to a 40-12 lead or weathering the Tar Heels' 28-6 run late in the first half that carried over to the second.
At the same time, Kansas has to be more drained than Memphis, which played earlier on Saturday and didn't have to expend nearly as much energy in disposing of UCLA.
(Now, if the Caliparis lose, I'll delete this right away :)
