“FINAL 4….Pick em Pal”

Shooting 3-point shot…nothing but net..no airballs


IOWA..U CONN….Lady Hawkeyes more than just Caitlin Clark, but she is something….U-Conn is Paige Beukers and her diverse talent.  Lost in the wild array of long distance three point shots is the fact Clark is unselfish, the whole team is unselfish.  Their bigs run the floor, hit shots, make back door passes and go to the hole.  A very fundamentally sound team.  Too many bigs who play all 40-minutes.  UConn, to have 33-wins with all these injuries, five in all, is an accomplishment.  But Hawkeyues on Friday

SOUTH CAROLINA-NORTH CAROLINA STATE…Dawn Staley doing at USC with the Gamecocks what she did at USC with Trojans.  Great coach-great recruiter.  Lady Wolfpack have size but not speed to keep up.


UCONN..ALABAMA…One game to the next, it could be C-Donovan Cleghans or it could be guards Tristen Newton or fast developing Stephon Castle…The Huskies front line and its back-court is really explosive.  The Crimson Tide play above the rim too and they have the most explosive guard in the tourney in Mark Sears.  The Huskies have too much, though the Tide’s bigs do play above the rim alot..Huskies move on.  Tide goes home.

PURDUE..N CAROLINA STATE…Sometimes it takes Zach Erdey time to get in the flow of the game.  But when he gets rolling, look out.  He tends to foul out all your bigs.  Key here is not just the 7’3-center but what kind of firepower support he gets from his three guards.  They need 3’s..they need some gritty defense.  Lance Jones-Braden Smith need big nights.  The Wolfpack are on a mission, that’s 9-wins in a row since the ACC tourney.  Yes 6’9-275 pound center DJ Burns takes up space but how can they defend the big Boilermaker?  They do have 15-fouls to use from their own big men, but then what?  Purdue to the finals to meet UConn and a true battle of aircraft carriers.

Enjoy it.  Some weekend ahead.
