I like Tyler a lot but I think he is going to get dominated by Griffin

I'm not worried about it, we have a lot of depth in our front court and can minimize his impact on the game to a point where UNC can win.

Zeller and Davis can take turns guarding him. Hopefully Hansborough wont have to see him too much

Hansbrough gives as good as he takes. Oklahoma is going to have their hands full with our front and backcourt.

Griffin will get his, UNC just needs to make sure nobody else goes off and play their game offensively.

That's the key...If he gets 25 and Hans gets 25, it's a wash.

Hansbrough seeks physical, he thrives on it. Griffin does not. I don't think Hansbrough loses in that connection...

UNC would be smart to go back and forth with a match up zone to keep any outside shooter from getting hot.
Man to man and inside it might come down to who can avoid foul trouble.

Two patented Hansbrough flops will have Griffin in foul trouble five minutes into the first half

I think Blake is the best post player in College, but Hans aint too shabby. THey don't have an advantage over UNC anywhere on the court. Can OK win? Hell yeah...I think the Heels look like a team on a mission, though.

Giffin is more athletic (moving with the ball and dribbling) than Hansbrough, but I don't think he's as tough. It should be a very good game.

UNC should win this game by 15. Crocker is not going to have a nothing career game. It has happened to Oklahoma all year, where Blake is the only one who performs and they lose. I am worried, because it is the Elite 8, but I do not think we will lose, if we win I will be much more nervous about 'Nova.

Blake is the #1 draft pick, so I figure he'll get 20+. Now can Tyler, Deon, Davis, and Zeller get him into foul trouble? If Lawson and Wayne can keep playing like they have been then I suspect UNC will win the game. It was also a plus to see Green start hitting some 3's again.

Go Heels!
