2011 Final Four Predictions: Cats and Dogs...And Rams

VCU vs. Butler

VCU is a nice story, but who can choose against Butler? Their back-to-back Final Four appearances is an amazing accomplishment for an elite program in a mid-major conference. VCU has gotten this far playing overrated teams, including top-seeded Kansas. Butler has found a way to grind out each game, the same way they made the title game last year. With Matt Howard inside and clutch guard Shelvin Mack, the Bulldogs are going to have another chance at the championship.

Kentucky vs. UConn

UConn has the best player in the tournament in Kemba Walker, but their other options are limited. Alex Oriakhi needs a huge game against Josh Harrellson and Jeremy Lamb has to hit some outside shots to keep the lanes open for Walker. However, this is a far different Kentucky team than the one that lost to the Huskies by 17 in November. Kentucky has too many offensive options and just knocked out two of the favorites last weekend in Ohio state and North Carolina. Can Deandre Liggins contain Walker? I think so. The Wildcats march on.
