good to see another reasonable basketball head on here besides rhymesayer and a couple others... the game has really eclipsed the other sports in my mind. i love every aspect of the game in it's pure form, but appreciate that games are won on the frontcourt in the NBA as they should be. I'll be curious to see who wins the championship tomorrow night. i think illinois obviously has to shoot lights out, especially behind the arc. the tarheels can quickly demoralize teams when they dominate inside, especially on the offensive glass. however, i think illinois' forwards have been playing well within the confines of their offense, particularly in terms of rebounding technique and timing. my head says NC based on talent (that freshman even looks special), but i hope illinois excutes well enough to stay in the game and win. i havent been this excited about a college matchup since i covered my college team... that was division III though. ironically division III plays more like the NBA... well oiled big men pretty much dominate and make the "flash"ier players look good. we got beat after being ranked #1 pretty much all year because they (Illinois Wesleyan or somesh1t) had MORE big talent depth, while we had one all american guy who basically owned. they went big, we missed our shots and the other coach looks like a genius.
