Welcome to HoopsHabit.com’s live blog for the 2013 NCAA Final Four mens basketball tournament featuring the 4-seed from the South Region, the Michigan Wolverines, against the 4-seed from the East Region, the Syracuse Orange. The action tips off around 8:50 PM ET time from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA.
Both Michigan and Syracuse enter this Final Four matchup playing their best basketball of the season. Once highly favorited teams to win the National Championship earlier this year, the Wolverines and Orange faded down the stretch, falling from potential 1-seeds to their current 4-seeds.
Something to look forward to in this game is the battle of the highly talented point guards, Michigan’s Trey Burke (Wooden Award winner for National Player of the Year) and Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams. It should be a fun matchup between these two elite point guards in the game to decide who will play in the National Championship game on Monday night.
Buckle up and enjoy the ride because it’s going to be a good one.
