Since I made a Syracuse-Michigan prediction, here’s my take Louisville-Wichita State.
Wichita State is a good team, superbly coached by Gregg Marshall. The Shockers are for real, as they proved by beating Ohio State in the West Region final.
I expect Louisville to win, however, and decisively. Wichita State hasn’t faced U of L’s quickness in guards Russ Smith and Peyton Siva. Plus, I expect Gorgui Dieng to be a difference-maker in this game.
My pick: Louisville 74, Wichita State 59.
