Championship Start Time

This is it, the pinnacle of the 2009 NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament – the Final Four National Championship.

There is only one game left to determine the winner of this year’s March Madness Tournament as the Michigan State Spartans are set to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Tom Izzo and the Spartans had one hell of a ride to get to this point, knocking off No. 3-seeded Kentucky in the Sweet 16, Lousiville in the Elite Eight and UCONN in the Final Four. Aided by sophomore guard Kalin Lucas (14.4 PPG, 5.4 Asst.) and senior center Goran Suton (10.6 RPG), Michigan State has been one of the surprises of the March Madness Tournament this year.

Nobody knew for sure what North Carolina would bring to the table. Sure, everyone knew how talented the Tar Heels were, led by forward Tyler Hansbrough and guard Ty Lawson. But Lawson had an injury that was supposed to set him back for most of the tournament, leading many to believe that either Gonzaga or Pittsburgh would eventually knock them off.

But Lawson only missed the opening round of the tournament and then helped UNC crush LSU, Gonzaga, Oklahoma and then Villanova in the Final Four. Lawson is averaging a staggering 20.8 points per game this season, while Hansbrough is pulling down 8 rebounds per game.

Tip off from Ford Field begins at 9:21PM ET tonight on CBS. Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have made North Carolina a 7.5-point favorite (-110), with the over/under total currently resting at 152.5 (-110).
