Saturday, April 6th, 2013 6:09 PM EST.
Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia

No. 9 Wichita St. Shockers (30-8) vs No. 1 Louisville Cardinals (33-5)
Wichita State - 30-8 SU, 20-14-1 ATS this season.
Louisville - 33-5 SU, 23-14-1 ATS this season.
Oddsmakers currently have Louisville as 10½-point favorite over Wichita State, with the total at 132.

The NCAA tournament was wildly unpredictable this year with a lot of upset games and Cinderella stories. The Wichita State Shockers rode their 2nd round upset of Gonzaga to make it all of the way to the Final Four. No one expects the Shockers to really contend in this game except for head coach, Greg Marshall, and his team of underdogs. The school has been mostly known for its success on the baseball diamond and they don’t even field a football team. The nation has finally taken notice now that Florida Golf Coast University has been sent home.

The Shockers won 30 games this year and they have had their most successful season on the hard court this year. Wichita State has ridden their hot outside shooters to upset wins over Gonzaga and Ohio State. Rick Pitino is not going to be the coach that takes the Shockers too lightly. He knows what Cleanthony Early and the Shockers can do with their speed and shooting touch and will need to devise a plan to slow down the attack. He’ll go into the game minus a key reserve in Kevin Ware which will require Russ Smith and Peyton Silva to play more minutes and be sure to stay out of foul trouble. The lack of depth for the Cardinals could ease up their defensive coverage allowing the Shockers to get off some shots. The key player to this game may surprisingly be forward Luke Hancock who could rotate back to play some guard. Wichita State will need to take advantage of every edge that they are given.

Prediction: Louisville 72, Wichita State 66

Saturday, April 6th, 2013  8:49 PM EST.
Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia

No. 4 Michigan Wolverines (30-7) vs No. 4 Syracuse Orange  (30-9)
Michigan - 30-7 SU, 19-16-1 ATS this season.
Syracuse - 30-9 SU, 19-15-1 ATS this season.

Oddsmakers currently have Michigan as 2-point favorite over Syracuse, with the total at 131.

These two four seeds both played their best basketball of the year during the tourney. Michigan has had the talent all year but underachieved at points. They have utilized Tim Hardaway Jr. to his strengths and Nik Stauskas has one of the hottest shooting hands going right now. They clear MVP for the Wolverines’ run has been Trey Burke who has been a model of consistency during the big dance. On a national stage, he has shown leadership that has been unmatched so far. Michigan obliterated Florida in a game in which they were four point underdogs and they did it by attacking on both sides of the court. They overmatched the Gators in almost every aspect of the game. Syracuse used a suffocating press defense to strangle Vander Blue and Marquette in the last round and showed that they can slow down any attack. They held Marquette to 39 points and limited the number one seed Indiana Hoosiers to just 50 points in the game prior. Michael-Carter Williams has been a rebounding machine at guard and has been getting steals and not turning the ball over.

 If Syracuse can continue to bend but not break on defense long enough to score some points then they could have a chance, a big task.

Prediction: Michigan 70, Syracuse 62
