A funny thing happened to Duke on the way to the Final Four. It was called Indiana.
The tourney was wide open, though many media people weren’t aware of it until last weekend.
Now for the championship picks:
Oklahoma 75, Indiana 63: The Sooners look like the best team in the tourney and it should carry over to the finals, where they should win it all. The Hoosiers could do no wrong against Kent State, but the feeling is their luck has run out.
Kansas 85, Maryland 79: The Terps are a tough team and will carry Kansas down to the wire before losing. However, Maryland will soften up the Jayhawks enough for Oklahoma to win the title.
