I'll suggest that Michigan State has the toughest of the four Regionals remaining-- the Spartans, Louisville, Marquette or Florida could all win and move on to the Final Four after this week end in Phoenix. Marquette and Louisville are already on the scene-- Louisville went from Portland down the coast over the week end and never returned home. The Spartans left late this afternoon after arriving late home Sunday from Columbus-- a two hour storm delay at the airport.
Kentucky appears to have the easiest road to the Final Four-- and the West regional winner awaits the Wildcats if they win two more games. On the other side of the bracket it's wide open-- Syracuse and North Carolina are number one sides there but both have injury issues to key players. Ohio State might be ready to pounce and my darkhorse from that side is North Carolina States, who may get a shot at North Carolina in the Elite Eight. Stay tuned-- four more games Thursday, four on Friday and then the big games to determine the Final Four coming Saturday and Sunday.
