Here Are Some Way Too Early Final Four Predictions For Your Reading Pleasure
Michigan State Spartans: The 2009-2010 Michigan State Spartans are loaded with talent. The National Championship Game runner-up Spartans will return 5 of their top 6 scorers, and have the best and deepest back court in the nation, including Big 10 Player of the Year Kalin Lucas, Durrell Summers, Chris Allen, and Korie Lucious. This season will be a defining one for senior forward Raymar Morgan as he will be relied on as a leader and needs to increase his rebounding and inside scoring numbers to make up for the loss of Goran Suton. The Spartans are adding two freshman centers in Derrick Nix and Garrick Sherman. Nix is a 275 pound, 6'9 rebounding beast who should be able to contribute a big body right away for the Spartans. 2010 will be another fantastic season for the Spartans, and another Final Four appearance.
Kansas Jayhawks: There isn't a Final Four prediction for 2010 that does not include the Kansas Jayhawks, and although I nearly had Villanova instead of Kansas in this article, I could not disrespect Kansas like that and underestimate their chances in 2010. Jayhawk stars Cole Aldrich and Sherron Collins both decided against entering the NBA Draft to take their run at a 2010 National Championship. The Jayhawks are returning their top 13 scorers, and if it wasn't for having to face the runner-up Spartans, they may have made a Championship appearance. The Jayhawks will have a fantastic season and will be there when the Final Four teams are set.
