PatsC'sSoxOhMy Final Four Predictions

Here we are. After about a million upsets we have reached the Final Four. A year in which it was impossible to pick your bracket. Just think of it this way: A 5 seed will be in the National Championship
Butler vs Michigan State  Michigan State has not found a good competition level so far in this tournament. The only time they faced a team seeded higher than them, they won on a buzzer beater!  They got a break playing Northern Iowa instead of Kansas. Butler,on the other hand, has tooken down two favorites in Syracuse and Kansas State. They didn't win on a buzzer beater either.   Butler: 78 Michigan State: 65

West Virginia vs Duke:    Just like Michigan State, Duke has not faced good competition in Ark PB, Cal, Purdue and now Baylor. This team has a tendency to choke and in my opinion they will again. West Virginia found a way to beat John Wall and Kentucky when they didn't even hit a 2-pointer in the first half! They shut down John Wall and got Demarcus Cousins frustrated. They will use the 3 to defeat Duke   West Virginia: 73  Duke: 67

Final: Butler vs West Virginia   After already upsetting Syracuse and Kansas State, the question is can they do it again. Gordan Hayward will lead Butler to an early 10-point lead,but once again the Mountaineers will use the 3 to climb back in and eventually pull of the victory
WVU: 81   Butler: 77
