    Gut says Kansas, but I'd love to see Memphis walk away with the title.

    I had Kansas the entire way but Memphis is peaking at the right time. Should be a good game.

    I don't know how this is going to play out, but Memphis has 3 players who will be drafted into the nba next year in the 1st round and Kansas has 4. It's going to be a good one. These rosters are stacked.

    I've watched Memphis a lot because they are in the Houston Cougars conference, and what amazed me most was that Houston's guards would blow past the Memphis guards, have what appeared to be an easy layup, and they got the heck swatted out of them. There were no easy baskets. None. And Houston has guards who will be drafted into the nba this year. Memphis was everywhere. The Tigers scoring could be erratic. But they played serious defense. And they have a soft touch when shooting. Everything seemingly bounces in for them when they need it. Houston led them at the half once, and did it by shooting a lot of deep threes.

    Being a Memphis fan, the one team I didn't want them to play was Kansas. Kansas finally has it all together. I know one thing, it should be exciting and high paced. 2 teams that love to run.

    yeah both teams love to run, run, run - which was why I wanted to see Kansas in the Final Four rather than UNC (although I picked UNC)

    this game will hopefully be a lot more enjoyable to watch then what we've been treated to the last couple of years

    It's going to be a fun game, and evenly matched. Like Gloat said, both teams love to run, and are very skilled at it. I see Memphis taking it.
