We Got The Hoya Paranoia Goin' On.

G-Town 96, UNC 84 -- After two full halves with the refs and Billy Packer in the tank for the Tar Heels, something changed within the last few minutes of the half, as the Hoyas brought it back with Roy Hibbert blocking shots, the team playing lockdown D, Jeff Green ensuring himself a big payday if he goes to the draft, and Jonathan Wallace nailing the 3 that sent it to overtime (also, the Tar Heels shooting like there was a lid on the basket did not hurt, either). Then, an overtime period of utter, absolute domination by Georgetown, as UNC only scored a 3 in OT garbage time -- giving us yet another classic Roy Williams choke job.

Florida 85, U. of Nike 77 - the Ducks were in foul trouble early and got screwed from there on out, more or less, despite Aaron Brooks' and Malik Hairston's best efforts to keep it close. Lee Humphrey is a nasty, nasty shooter, nailing threes when Florida needed to keep the Ducks away from making it close.

This makes your Final Four matchups go like this:

UCLA vs. Florida -- re-match of last year's national championship game and the Ugly-Off between Lorenzo Mata and Joakim Noah.
Georgetown vs. Ohio State - HULK SMASH THROWDOWN between Roy Hibbert and Greg Oden.
