Today is awesome the game last night was amazing the cards pulled through and once again were in the elite 8! The game was a grind last night which you would think would favor Michigan St, but give Rick credit he out coached, and out smarted Izzo. The MVP goes to the best Gorgui Dieng, Gorgu's blocked seemingly everything that came in the paint, and hit the three! Siva although his scoring was down he had 9 assists and controlled the game showing signs of in game maturity. Chane Behanan was also big time last night 15 points in the second half along with 9 rebounds is big for a freshman. Last but not least the Smith Brothers brought energy, scoring, rebounding, and steals. So who is the MVP? I'm going with Gorgu's well because he' s Gorgu's.
The last question is if we beat Florida do you want Kentucky? If you don't play kentucky your probably getting Indiana or Baylor. On a matchup stand point you want either of those two teams over kentucky, but the thrill of playing kentucky in the final four would be crazy? Imagine Rick vs Cal in the big game. If we lose it would be bad, but its not terrible and if we win it's right up there with the two championships. So do you want Kentucky?
Finally a shout out to Rick Pitino who has done an unbelievable job in the tourney. The regular season was rocky, but right now the cards are rolling in March.
