After tonight I'll really struggle waiting for Football Season
Florida broke the game open on Saturday when Lee Humphrey decided to show up and just rain from 3 at the beginning of the 2nd half. That will be a big difference between LSU and Florida for UCLA. LSU did not hit a single 3 pointer on Saturday, becoming the first team since the 2nd year of the Fab Five to not hit a 3 in the Final Four. Horford and Noah are just as good, if not better than Davis and Thomas but there is the added threat of the perimeter game that LSU did not have.
However, UCLA's bigs have played extremely well throughout this tournament and they continue to do so. Ryan Hollins has been great throughout this run while Luc Richard Mbah A Moute has emerged as a serious player, even Lorenzo Mata is doing his part with his tough D, it must be the mask that he has to wear since he broke his nose, maybe it'll be like Rip Hamilton and bring his team luck while winning a championship. Aaron Afflalo has had good games but he has not exploded like we know he can, if he does watch out, and Jordan Farmar has been shooting the ball very well and if he's stroking the 3 as he did on Saturday, UCLA will be extremely tough to beat. You know what I'm going to say, I've got a good amount of money riding on it as well, I'm picking the UCLA Bruins to win the championship, a year earlier than expected.
