    I’ve been saying that all along about Hansbrough. He is going to get handled at the NBA level by players that are bigger and stronger than him. He’s great in college but he’s also so much better than most of the kids in the NCAA. Since NBA teams have so few spots the talent level is much higher and so he will have a hard time adjusting to that type of competition, or I’m completely wrong and he’ll be great in the 4 spot.

    As a partial UNC alum, I agree with you Matt and Josh. Tyler is a great college basketball player but I don’t see his skills and size translating well to the NBA. Who knows though, under-sized players have made great NBA players before. The real question is what’s his drive and heart, does he have the willpower to work on his weaknesses and do the dirty work to get better? We shall see…

    Btw, gotta agree with the sportsfangirl on UNC winning it all. My prediction was for UConn to beat MSU and UNC to beat Duke, so I got 3 out of 4 teams. Hopefully, the rest of my predictions shake out and I can celebrate another Tarheel championship!

    Way to pick ’em Josh. UNC vs. MSU for all the glory tomorrow night.

    Got to root for my Tarheels but the Spartans are going to be a very tough adversary.

      Adam you must have a short memory. UNC smashed MSU in December by 35. Granted anything can happen now and the Spartans have been playing well, I don’t think it’s going to be as close as we might expect.

      I pick UNC to win this game by double figures. For arguments sake let’s go with between 12-19 point margin of victory.

        Truthfully, Matt, I haven’t watched many games this year. I’ve got a feel for the season from checking stats and box-scores every now and then but didn’t even know we blew em out in December.

        Still think it will be close, but UNC will win.
