Buddy, it should be a thrilling Final Four.College basketball’s biggest dance has come down to the best player, the best team, and oddly enough, the best zone defense.Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield has rocked to sleep any doubts about who is college basketball’s best player. He scored 37 in a surprisingly easy win over Oregon on Saturday to catapult the Sooners into the Final Four.A walking jump shot, Hield is averaging 29.3 points per game in the tournament, scoring over 30 points twice. Even though defenders have been clinging to him tighter than batter on a corndog, Hield has been giving lessons on how to make contested 3-pointers.Hield may be the best player, but North Carolina looks to be the best team.
