I'd like to thank my opponent for debating this topic. Even though the game is tomorrow I want to see who you think will win tomorrow's final four game between Carolina and Kansas. I would like to pick Carolina and I'll let my opponent go first on why he thinks Kansas would win.

I thank my opponent for creating this deabte because I love college basket ball. Now for Kansas, I think they would win because of their leadership and being in this postiton before. Kansas has been lead excellently by Rush and has great perimeter shooting plus they play very well on a fast and slow tempo so they can control the game any way they want to. I want my opponent to rebbutt now so I'll stop for now.

I thank my opponent for responding but to refute his comments I have to say that Carolina does the same thing as Kansas and more.
1.Around 20 of their 80 average points come from fast-breaks which means Carolina can play with Kansas the whole game.
2.Kansas' perimeter shooting. Well so does Carolina with Wanye Ellington shooting .414% from behind the arc which is amazing plus Macrus Ginyard and others shooting over .385% from three-point land. Plus Carolina has Hansboro who can dominant from the inside and draw fouls which will put Kansas in trouble.
3.Brandon Rush will dominate Carolina. This is simply untrue Carolina can either double team or Wanye Ellington, Ty Lawson, and or Quientin Thomas can shut him down. Now I ask MY OPPONENT who will step up for Brandon Rush?

Also Kansas almost lost to Davidson a few days ago and if they almost lost last time to a weaker team than Carolina how will they beat them.
Finally Carolina scores an average 90 points a game and only give up 72 points to a opponent that's a +18 point difference for Carolina so they should wipe Kansas.

Now it gets interesting.
You said Carolina has perimeter shooting but Kansas' is better with 4 guys including Rush shoot over.500% from 3-point land.
Also we do have a inside game with Kaun who puts up 18 points close to Hansboro.
Also if Rush is shut down we have Arthur, Darrell,15 Chalmers, Mario,32 Jackson, Darnell... ,04 Collins, Sherron... ,and
03 Robinson, Russell... all scoring over 25 points a game.
As for Davidson they were a good and could of beaten you. Finally we score 80 points a game and let up around 70 so we can hang with you.

Ah ha but you forgot to say that all of your points mostly come from your starters while if you look at Carolina we're a balanced team and I'll show you.

11 Quentin Thomas..... 36-9 574 15.9 43-76 .566

Obvousley we are a more balanced team than you because I look at Kansas' bench and they score around 15 of your points while our scores around 35 thus we can beat you with anyone while you'll have to play your starters and tire them out to the point when you lose it.

Your right with the bench but I still think our starters can win it and so I leave voting up to the people.

h-yeh kansas destroyed unc *laughs very hard at "psycho-t"* kansas deserved to win it all after beating davidson, destroying unc, and hitting a great shot at the end of the memphis game and then tearing memphis up in ot

Kansas is deep and balanced. They are built for the tournament because they are not reliant on one tool. If Rush has a slow night, Chalmers picks it up. If the inside game isn't working, their gaurds shoot marvelously and vice-versa.

Tyler Hansborough is a gimp. He is the annual college darling just like Laitner was for Duke. All of the analysts cry "TYLER TYLER" just like they did for Noah last year. He flops around and never gets called for fouls. He will be the biggest NBA dud in history. Kansas has three inside men that are at least three inches and 25 lbs bigger than him.

UNC plays at a high pace and Kansas plays in the half-court. It is always easier to slow a game down than speed a game up.

Kansas beats UCLA in the finals.
