I was listening to ESPN radio the other day and they said that Stanford has no chance at beating Texas.  They claim the guard play doesn't match up.  They didn't say anything about the Longhorns not being able to match up with the two seven foot Lopez brothers.  I think hight will be the deciding factor in that game.  The Lopezes should be able to pull down a lot of rebounds and limit the Longhorns second chance shots if the two teams happen to meet up. 

In my bracket I have Stanford losing in the National Championship game.  They should beat Cornell and beat which ever guard oriented team it faces in the next round.  They will then probly play Texas, which I think they will win.  Then I have them playing Michigan State, who upset Memphis.  I then have Stanford playing UCLA, and I don't think UCLA can beat Stanford for the forth time this year.

Right away, I would never have put Stanford in the final, but I think the matchups work out perfectly for Stanford and they have a good shot at making the finals in San Antonio.
