Final Four 2012: SB Nation Experts Predict Kentucky And Ohio State Will Meet In National Champioship

The Kansas Jayhawks take on the Ohio St. Buckeyes and the Kentucky Wildcats play the Louisville Cardinals in Final Four matchups this weekend, and SB Nation's Dan Rubenstein and SBN college basketball expert Nick Fasulo break down some key matchups in these two 2012 NCAA Tournament games. According to Fasulo, Tyshawn Taylor and Kevin Young won't be enough to make the difference for Kansas against Ohio State. Meanwhile, Kentucky will roll against Louisville because the Wildcats will be able to impose their style of play and Russ Smith won't score efficiently enough to prop up the Cardinals' offense.
