The Final Four begins today!

I haven't had much to say all week about Georgetown. I've been analyzing in my head what we need to do and how we can win this one, and the answer always comes back to one scenario....somebody unexpected is going to step up and shine.

I firmly believe that the unexpected performance will come from Othello Hunter.

All week long, the Hoyas have been practicing to attack our triple threat of Oden, Conley, and Lewis. That's a hell of a task in itself, stopping those three. It's going to end up leaving the door open for another Buckeye to step in and take over the game. With Hibbert being occupied by Oden all day long, Hunter has an opportunity.

As for the entire Georgetown season, I've been looking it over, and I've seen moments of true greatness. They absolutely humiliated Pittsburgh in the Big East final, and they shut down North Carolina in the final 2-minutes-plus-overtime last weekend. But other than that, they have fought their way to this Final Four. They've won 19 of their last 20 games, knocking off six ranked teams along the way.

Of course, Ohio State has won 21 of their last 21 games and defeated three Top 5 teams in the past three weeks.

In other words, it's going to be a hell of a game.
