Conference Championship previews ACC and Big Ten

Published on March 11, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

ACC: North Carolina Florida State

The Tar Heels still have a 33 in their locker room to represent 33 points they lost by at Florida State this season. It’s clear that North Carolina wants revenge and I think they will get that revenge and win the ACC tournament. You just saw what happened when the Tar Heels wanted revenge on Duke; they destroyed them. In that game Florida State’s Deividas Dulkys had a career night hitting 8 threes I don’t see this happening again. As for the game it will be back and forth but UNC’s Harrison Barnes will hit a three late to secure the victory for the Heels. Barnes has been a clutch player throughout his career. I see Kendall Marshall also having a big game as he has shown his ability to score lately. I think FSU will focus on shutting down Tyler Zeller letting Marshall and Reggie Bullock have a big game.  Does John Henson play ? Even if he doesn’t I still like the Tar Heels. 

Does winning the ACC really mean anything? In 2005 and 09 the Tar Heels lost in the ACC tournament and then went on to win the NCAA title. With the win the Tar Heels will lock up a number one seed. Besides Kentucky the Heels have the best team and have the most talent out there.  North Carolina -64 Florida State-60

Big Ten: Michigan State Ohio State

I think this is the game everyone wanted to see in the Big Ten finals. Both teams just played in the last regular season game with Ohio State winning on a buzzer beater. Michigan State won earlier in the season at Ohio State. This game will be back and forth the whole way but I think Ohio State will get the victory at the end. William Buford will hit another clutch shot late to seal the victory for the Buckeyes. Jared Sullinger and Draymond Green will cancel each other out.  Sullinger is playing his best basketball of the season right now.  His last two games he has scored 30 and 24 points.  One thing you know is that you will always get consistent guard play for the Buckeyes but the Michigan State guards are very inconsistent.  Ohio State -67 Michigan State-58
