Analysis: Louisville hasn’t been tested in beating North Carolina A&T, Colorado State, and Oregon. The Cardinals’ full-court press and pell-mell style set the tone in those three victories. Duke will not be pushed around so easily; the Blue Devils will match any physical play. They also will not be intimidated by the full-court pressure. That doesn’t mean they’re going to win. This will be competitive, but Louisville has played the way an overall No. 1 seed should. Right now, it is the best team in the tournament.

MICHIGAN VS. FLORIDA

Regional: South. Time: 2:20 p.m.  Seed, record/last 10: 4. Michigan (29-7, 7-3); 3. Florida (29-7/7-3).

Analysis: Michigan advanced with a miraculous comeback over No. 1 Kansas Friday. Florida sort of plodded along and beat Florida Gulf Coast. Michigan has the most impressive victory in the tournament, too — a vaporizing of VCU. The Michigan guards, Burke and Hardaway, are speedy, smart, and dangerous shooters. Florida’s guards, especially Rosario, can match them, for the most part. Neither team has a great inside game, so it will come down to whose guards gain the advantage. Right now, Michigan’s are playing better.
