(1) Butler - Sure they might be the only “mid-major” left in the tournament, but at this time of year there are no such things as mid-majors. The first thing they’ve got going for them is that they are going to be playing in their home state, so they’ll have the crowd behind them. But what makes them the most dangerous team is that they’re on a 24 game winning streak, they haven’t lost since before Christmas.
(2) Duke – They say defense wins championships, well we say it’s the offense and nobody left in the Final Four puts the ball in the hoop more than the Blue Devils. Jon Scheyer has finally broken out of his slump the past 2 games and Nolan Smith is playing like an All-American. As much as I hate to say it, Dukes looking real good.
(3) Michigan State – This team and Tom Izzo where here last year. They know what to expect and they know what it takes to get it done. After losing like they did last year in the Final Four, nobody is going to be as hungry and the Spartans for the win.
(4) West Virginia – They come into the Final Four limping. They still don’t have a point guard, we doubt they can put on a 3 point shooting display like they did during the first half against Kentucky, and we know Duke is not going to shoot that poorly from the foul line. The Mountaineers are the least dangerous team.
