Need help picking the Final Four? CHN writers give their National Champion & Final predictions and we try and come up with some semblance of a consensus.
Note how the #1 seeds dominate our predictions. Perhaps our memories are overly dominated by last year year's Final Four, or maybe the top teams really are just that good. See how these picks compare to CHN's Official Prediction.

Champion: Pittsburgh (5 of 9)
Runner Up: UNC
East: Pittsburgh (7 of 9)
Midwest: Louisville (7 of 9)
West: UCONN/Memphis (4 of 9 each)
South: UNC (7 of 9)
The only real "surprise" picks are Wake Forest & Florida State in the Final Four by two of our writers. Interesting that the ACC is given a lot of respect.. except for Duke, which doesn't even make anybody's list. Perhaps that will come back to haunt us?..
