The stage is set at the Georgia Dome for the Final Four
By Niko Tamurian
Sat, 06 Apr 2013 19:46:50 GMT — The stage is set. The Georgia Dome is all dressed up and a National Championship game is about to be set. Media is trickling, and fans are hanging out at Centennial Park enjoying a concert by Muse and Ludacris among other artists. The big show though, of course, is tonight. Basketball fans shouldn't count out Wichita State against Louisville, but, most are. As a result, the one everybody is looking forward to is Syracuse vs. Michigan. And why not? Sports fans can't get enough of breaking down this game. The matchups are unbelievably even- from AP Player of the Year Trey Burke against Michael Carter-Williams to the Orange big men against Mitch McGary and even the shooting setup between Nik Stauskas and James Southerland there's just so much to research, and be excited about. For local fans, embrace this-Embrace Syracuse being in the Final Four for the first time in ten years. I actually just had the pleasure of meeting famous sports reporter Lesley Visser who gave me sound advice, she said "Make a memory....Don't let it (this Final Four) be a blur and fly by". I'll try to take that advice, and certainly, pass it along to CNY. Pick a moment, maybe it already happened or maybe it will in the next 72 hours. But take that moment and remember it in your mind for we don't know the next time we'll see the Orange on such a grand stage so close to a national title----and perhaps bringing one home.
