Davion Mitchell will be a better pro than Suggs. Suggs looks like another Devin Harris with his good speed but average feel.

Davion Mitchell is a great defender, makes really advanced reads passing the ball, gets to the basket, and creates separation on his jumpshot.

I've never seen him play, but with his name, #45, stocky build, and athleticism, he makes me think of Donovan Mitchell.  Apparently he's mocked to the Celts at 15 on nbadraft.net, and compared to Smart as an NBA player.

Impressed by Baylor. They look so much more athletic and aggressive.

You can argue Gonzaga should have lost last game as well. They just got trucked tonight. Bad timing for them to put up a stinker.

The way heís been playing this tourney, heís gonna be long gone by the time the Celtics are picking.

Heís been a pleasure to watch throughout this tourney.

If the Zags can somehow cut this to 10 by the half, they're going to win.

Wow.  Exactly 10 at the half. 

Is this another Tarstradamus prediction? Time will tell.

For now, TP tar.

Self-reported for stupidity.  Mods can confirm.

Fingers crossed that other teams make mistakes.  He was impressive tonight.

Itís funny that you think that, he randomly changed his number to #45 when he transferred, and it just happened to be after Donovan Mitchell really burst onto the scene.

Iíve been high on him a while. Heíd fit well into those two guard lineups we love to play. Him and PP would be epic together

I've wanted to put an asterisk on this season for a long time (even though my UM did well), but Baylor got it done in convincing fashion, and I'd be remiss to knock them.

My prediction:  this one comes off the books in a few years.  I get the sense that the entire Baylor athletic program is dirty.  But, the kids got it done on the floor. I didnít think they would make it after they dropped a couple of games in the big 12. Instead, they crushed teams. Really impressive.

Aha! Wouldn't be the first time.  Any sources?

Gonzaga....Warriors' 73-9 season....New England Patriots 2007 season....it's so hard to go a perfect season and win it all.

Crazy game, looking forward to the championship game. Let's see if the Zags have anything left (mentally and emotionally) after that effort. Let's hope that wasn't their "championship game" and that they have more left in the tank to try and pull off the unbeaten season.

I had a feeling that UCLA game took too much out of the Zags. It was their "final" so to speak.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

Some of the Gonzaga guys like Timme and Kispert would scare me if we drafted them.  I mean they're great college players.
