Final Four predictions 2013: Are we in for an All-Big East final?


Louisville is a unanimous pick to end Wichita State's run. The question is: Who will the Cardinals face in the championship game?

The 2013 Final Four tips off at 6:09 p.m. ET on Saturday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga., with the Wichita State Shockers taking on the Louisville Cardinals. The Syracuse Orange and Michigan Wolverines follows less than three hours later.

Top-seeded Louisville is an overwhelming favorite to end Wichita State's Cinderella run, and the pundits at ESPN agree. All seven experts picked the Cardinals to advance to the national championship game, but the team they'll face was a little more widely-debated. Four writers -- Eamonn Brennan, John Gasaway, Andy Katz and Dana O'Neil -- think an all-Big East championship game is in the cards. The other three -- Jason King, Myron Medcalf and Robbi Pickeral -- have Michigan in the title game.

The Associated Press (via Fox News) agrees with ESPN. The AP has Louisville taking out Wichita State in a blowout and Syracuse using its zone defense to hold Michigan to a low scoring output en route to a win.
