I don't know about that. Memphis really doesn't have any weak spots on the floor if they come to play and they have been the last three games. I think Kansas's back court will give Memphis more problems than they have had lately with other guards just because of the taller and more physical nature of them. I think they might exploit the hell of of the one Kansas backup guard that comes in through, so I'm curious about what type of defense Kansas will play when he is in the game.
Kansas's big guys are deeper/more talented. If they don't forget about going inside to Kaun/Arthur/Aldrich/Jackson, they'll be hard pressed to lose. Memphis' guards are really good, and they can run like no one else (except maybe Kansas). It'll be a damn good game, I expect a very high score.

FYP. Let's face reality folks. College basketball is really down in general lately. College basketball may arouse more passion because people's alma maters are involved but at some point in the last five years the NBA just zoomed past college in terms of watchability/competitiveness/etc.edit: this is a kansas thread and I did nail the Final Four AND have KU over Memphis for the title.....so why change now? My prediction in my ESPN bracket was KU 88- Memphis 81. Sticking with that.
I completely disagree. I think the NBA is actually 10x less watchable than college basketball. I think the competitiveness is just skewed this year, but 4 #1's had to make the Final Four eventually, and I'm glad it happened. The best of the best do occasionally deserve to battle it out for all the marbles. During the tournament, even with the poor officiating lately, I never get more pumped for a sporting event.
