We asked four basketball experts to take part in our Bracket Challenge and make their picks for the NCAA tournament public. No big surprises. Three of them think the star-studded North Carolina team will be cutting the nets in Detroit in a couple of weeks. Those would be Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, 17-year NBA veteran Eddie Johnson and DraftExpress.com president Jonathan Givony. Julius Hodge was the only dissenter — probably because of his North Carolina State affiliation. The 2004 ACC Player of the Year chose Pittsburgh to go all the way.
Check out their Final Four projections below:
Eddie Johnson, former NBA player
Wyc Grousbeck, Boston Celtics owner
Julius Hodge, 2004 ACC Player of the Year
Jonathan Givony, DraftExpress.com president
