Who Will Be Cutting Down the Nets in 2023?

Who had UConn, Miami, Florida Atlantic and San Diego State making the Final Four in their bracket? Alabama, Houston, Tennessee and UConn were my picks to reach the Final Four. UConn has been the most impressive team throughout the tournament after blowing out everyone. Miami were underdogs in their games against Houston and Texas, but advanced to the Final Four. Florida Atlantic took out Tennessee and Kansas State on their way to championship weekend. Finally, the San Diego State Aztecs defeated top seed Alabama and Creighton to get to this point. In one game, the Florida Atlantic Owls will battle the San Diego State Aztecs. The other semifinal game will have the UConn Huskies take on the Miami Hurricanes. My Final Four prediction after the Sweet 16 had Alabama, Michigan State, Houston and UConn advancing. Let’s see who will be cutting down the nets in 2023?


The first game will have Florida Atlantic Owls battling the San Diego State Aztecs. This matchup is what’s amazing about March Madness. The Owls and Aztecs are playing in their first Final Four in both schools history. San Diego State goes through spirts where they have trouble scoring. They are a very physical and imposing team that plays great defense. The Aztecs like to slow the game down and force the other team to play their style. Florida Atlantic like to play at a fast tempo, but they come with a deep team. The bench plays just as many minutes as anyone in the country. Like the Aztecs, Florida Atlantic gets after you on the defensive side of the ball. If it’s a high scoring game, it favors the Owls. This will be a lower scoring game and the Aztecs will advance to the title game. Winner: San Diego State


The second game Saturday night in Houston will pit the UConn Huskies taking on the Miami Hurricanes. The Huskies won their first four games by 15 points or more. UConn began the season as one of the best teams and rose to No. 2 in the AP polls. They can beat you with the three balls with their excellent 3-point shooters. They also have a pair of big men that can control the rim on both sides of the ball. Miami is undersized, but they have some of the best guards in the nation. If the Hurricanes guards can get the big men of UConn in foul trouble, they have a shot. It will be hard for the Huskies to contain the speed of the Canes. This will be an exciting game, but I’m still riding with the Huskies to move on. Winner: UConn Huskies


Championship Game

In the championship game, I’m picking the San Diego State Aztecs battling the UConn Huskies. The Aztecs survived a thriller against Creighton in the Elite 8. Before that, they took down the #1 overall team in Alabama in the Sweet 16. The program has been heading in the right direction. The physical style of play can match up well against the Huskies. Can they complete the mission and become the first Mountain West team to win the championship? As mentioned before, UConn has dominated every team they have faced in the tournament. Adama Sanogo and Donovan Clingan controlled the interior throughout the tournament. Jordan Hawkins, Alex Karaban and Joey Calcaterra is killing it from the outside. After their beatdown of Gonzaga, this Huskies team seems like they’re on a mission. UConn was my pick from the start and think they will cut down the net in 2023. UConn Wins National Title
