  NCAA Final: Illinois 88, Louisville 85
Sports-writer Rob Miech predicts an Illinois vs. Louisville NCAA final in the Las Vegas Sun here. Why is a writer from Las Vegas writing about the Cardinals and the Illini? Let's read:

Illini coach Bruce Weber has even started taking on Vegas to fire up his team for extra motivation.

Playing the Spartans on their own court is tough enough, but Weber told his players that the line Tuesday was an embarrassment to the program. The spread fluctuated around a pick 'em around town.

"A slap in the face," Deron Williams of the Illini told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I don't know what else we have to do to prove we're No. 1. We should be getting more respect ... but that's cool."

His prediction for the matchup: Illinois 88, Louisville 85.
