Dick Vitale Final Four Picks: Virginia, Michigan State


ATLANTA (92.9 The Game) -- ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale sets up the Final Four and explained why Auburn, which played so well against Kentucky in the Elite Eight, could struggle with Virginia.

"Virginia is one of those teams," Vitale told "John and Hugh" on Monday morning. "They can control the tempo in a game, contain those guards, which they're capable of doing. They're going to be a real task (for Auburn)."

Vitale likes Virginia, but he seems to love Michigan State, which faces Texas Tech in the national semifinals. 

"They're my favorite to win it all now," said the long-time hoops announcer. "I think the experience factor, (Tom) Izzo's experience of being there, all of that really plays into it. He's got these kids playing at a fever pitch."
