I'm officially getting pumped! It just hit me. I notice that Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg will be the broadcasters. Two of the better ones I think. Hope like heck we get by Creighton. I live in Raleigh and would love to see us play UNC. First things first. Observations:
I'm surprised at how well Creighton rebounds defensively. We're going to need second chance points in this game. Green, Randolph, and Jacobs rebounding will be big.
My gut feeling is we are going to gave a much better offensive game than most are anticipating. Prediction - Lacey finds his range and scores big along with Green. I don't think Creighton can handle Green in the paint. He absolutely has to avoid careless fouls.
The defensive athleticism of Randolph, Cooper and possibly Hankerson will cause Creighton problems. We should create turnovers and score in transition.
The coaching match-up will be interesting. I believe we win this one.
