Team HoopsDaily has
3 Tar Heels, 3 Huskies and 2 Wildcats, while Team NBADraft.net has 2 Tar Heels,
2 Huskies, 2 Spartans and 1 Wildcat. So a Michigan State-Villanova final would
greatly benefit team NBADraft.net’s chances.

Team
Outlooks:


Brain Cerone’s (420 points) Cerone’s team beneftted
greatly by having Sam Young fall to him at 4. He also made a phenominal choice
in the last round grabbing 59 point scoring Stanley Robinson who is still adding
to his total. Even with no Sam Young, Cerone’s duo of Adrien and Robinson could
be enough to push him over the finish line. Should Michigan State upset UConn,
it will likely open the door wide for another team to win it. With a 19 point
lead and 2 dependable scorers left and likely to play 2 games, this team has a
strong chance of winning.

Mark Priaulx (401 points) This team is just 19
points off the pace. If Villanova can somehow pull the upset over the Tar Heels,
this team will have a real shot at winning with Nova’s top 2 scorers. Without a
Nova win, it’s hard to imagine this team scoring enough to get the
win.

Jon Pastuszek (394 points) Pastuszek’s team could end up with the
top two overall scorers in the tournament with Blake Griffin and the leader
among players still alive, AJ Price. With possibly the most firepower left in
Price and Green, this team could come from behind and make up the 26 points
should UConn and UNC meet in the final.

Borko Popic (384 points) The only
team left with more than 2 players, this team could greatly benefit from some
bounce back performances from final pick Raymar Morgan. Just 4 points in the
past 2 rounds is not getting the job done. Stanley Robinson’s 36 point lead over
Morgan is exactly the point differential between Popic’s team and first place
Cerone’s team. With Hansbrough and Thompson, this team could definitely climb to
first place, particularly if Michigan State can upset UConn.

Aran Smith
(369 points) With Villanova beating Pitt, my chances of winning went up in
smoke. And with Sam Young consistently outscoring Fields and Blair combined,
this team would have had a near impossible job of reeling in the first place
team anyway. The criticized third and fourth round picks of Fields and Walker
could have been better selections, however combined they actually outscored all
but two team’s 3rd and 4th rounders. This team has a good shot to overtake
Priaulx’s squad if UConn and UNC meet in the final, but with 51 points to make
up on the leader, this team has little chance of winning.

Adam Ganeles
(332 points) Ganeles doesn’t have much hope for improvement with just one player
(Corey Fisher) left and 37 points off the pace. This team had a lot of explosive
scorers, but ultimately fell short as those player’s teams were eliminated.

Joshua Motenko (279 points) Motenko has a shot to move up to sixth place
with 2 very live players still going. 53 points behind, should Lawson and
Thabeet both have big games in the final four and championship game, it’s
possible he could score close to 100 points and move into 6th place.

Adi
Joseph (227 points) Joseph needs Kalin Lucas to singlehandedly outscore Hasheem
Thabeet and Ty Lawson in order to make up ground on the second to last place
finisher. 52 points behind, that has about as much chance of happening as the
Lions winning the superbowl next year.
