Michigan at their best is just as good as KU. They're perhaps the best offensive team in the country. But I like the matchup for KU. I think you can limit Burke's effectiveness by funneling him into Withey and having the rest stay on their men on the perimeter (similar to what they have done when they play Craft on OSU, although Burke is an entirely different and far more difficult challenge). I believe elite defense beats elite offense most of the time, especially in the tournament where grinding games are often the norm. If KU can play like they did in the 2nd half today (and not like they did in the first 3/4 of this tournament), they should win.
