Before the NCAA Tournament began, I picked Pittsburgh, Oklahoma, Washington and Louisville to make it to the Final Four and figured the Panthers would win it all.
I know. None of them even made it to Detroit. Don’t remind me.
Anyway, my Final Four prediction had a couple of disclaimers. Here’s one of them:
“As much as I think North Carolina has the most talent of any team in the country, just unsure about Ty Lawson’s injury. If he was healthy, I’d have the Tar Heels winning it all.”
Well, after missing North Carolina’s first tournament game, Lawson played through the toe injury, got healthy and led the Tar Heels to their fifth national title.
