No. 1 Washington vs. No. 4 Louisville

This is an intriguing matchup, because it's not often that most people believe a 4-seed should be favored over a 1-seed.

If I'm a Louisville fan, I feel good that Rick Pitino usually has something up his sleeve in big games like this. I can remember back to Providence's win over a supposedly superior Georgetown team in 1987 when Pitino's Friars took it right at the Hoyas and buried them with 3s instead of slowing the tempo down.
