It is hard to ignore the signs that March's madness is over. The stream of games resembling the fire hose is reduced to a thin trickle, the office recycling bin overflows with dropped staples and is actually April. However, three matches remain in the NCAA tournament.
Virginia avenged last year's humiliation of the first round, but in order to complete the history of redemption, the cavalry must fight another offside in Contarn. Mad Madness royalties appear on Tom Exoz and Michigan on the other side of the bracket, but the Spartans will have to do what no one else in the tournament has managed to solve Texas Tech and the country's best defense.
These games will decide who will appear in the national match from next Monday and the potential results provide four very different finals. Will it be woken with a good thrust of circular joy? Or will Virginia join? What follows is a scientific list, arranged in descending order, which describes how each game ranks in value of entertainment.
4. Texas Technic vs. Virginia.
If you ever wanted to see a concrete bomb, fight a glacier, then that's the game for you. Red strikers put their opponents at a cruel, similar to B.F. In "Sweet Sixteen", Texas limits Michigan to only 16 points from the first half and you have to wonder if the poor Wolverines can now watch basketball without collapsing in a trembling pile.
In the meantime, Virginia thrives in austerity. According to Kenpom.com, Cavaliers play at a slower pace than any other team in Division I basketball. A game between Virginia and Texas will be like a rock battle with stones. Of course, there will be a winner, but do you really want to watch five guys who spend 40 minutes in a methodical design of a rock moving system?
3. Michigan State against Virginia.
This game will be interesting, so it's a good sign that it's the second worst chance for a national championship. Both teams are experienced, cohesive and well trained. The Spartans Attack Cassius Winston is one of the smoothest and smartest players in college basketball, and we will be lucky to see him working on Virginia's security locks.
But good teams are not mandatory for good games. Do you want to know another game that is played between two experienced, cohesive and well-trained programs? National Cup 2011, when Connecticut defeated Butler, 53-41. It was a chess game that reminded everyone why the chess games are not broadcast on television over the net.
CBS probably wants this showdown between two rating programs for ratings, but in terms of potential entertainment, we can all do better.
2. Texas Tech vs. Auburn
The Auburn – Texas Tech title would be the least likely match. No school screaming "basketball," and the only chance you will get to see that the Red Assassins take the tigers into a big game will probably be in the "Cup of the Capital". But the novelty is fun, and this is a strange pair that is worth promoting.
Go to the Apple Store and play music on any device at the same time and in full volume. Pay attention to the panicked, desperate employees who are trying to end the cacophony. Here's what it's like to play against Auburn. You can not hope to stop them at once, so in the end you just succumb to the chaos.
The Tiger Road to the Final Four saw that they were cutting the blue blood of a college with impatience, like Terannos. They destroyed Kansas and North Carolina before they escaped from Kentucky to Elite Eighth. Auburn's biggest pilot came in the first round against New Mexico in one of the strangest games. They only know how to be exciting and you have to take the opportunity to watch them play twice more.
Except for the overwhelming protection, Texas Tech boasts the most talented remaining player in the tournament. The duel keeper Jarrett Culver has a chance to be the Top 3 in this year's NBA.
Culver may be in the New York Knicks rostrum the next time you see him so please do not take these games for granted.
1. State Michigan vs Counter.
There is a lot to be loved in this game. Connor tries the second-largest 3-point in Division I basketball this year, and Michigan's country has the most assists in the country. These are two different but effective crimes and we must be so happy to see them play chickens at the greatest possible stage.
As an extra bonus, this game also features a battle between the Pacific Ocean – between two of the most red and foolish coaches in the world. Izzo's bursting gasket during the first match of the tournament was the subject of his own news cycle, and Bruce Pearl of Auburn was never the one to get rid of the sweaty, TV breakdown. Of course, the championship will be fun, but the real show will be in the scenes featuring these apllicious ham.
Now this is fun.
