[MATT YOUMANS Review-Journal, 30-28-2 (overall record)]
Today’s best bet: Texas (+31/2) over Memphis
There is no denying how tough the Tigers (36-1) have looked all season, and especially in their Sweet 16 blowout of Michigan State. Memphis’ strength is its guards, junior Chris Douglas-Roberts and freshman Derrick Rose. The Longhorns, led by the guard play of D.J. Augustin, are fundamentally sound and getting points in this game at Houston. It’s time for a close finish and a No. 1 seed to fall.
