Scouting report: Why MSU will beat Louisville in Elite 8--The Detroit Free Press

Speaking of big and imposing, 6-10 sophomore Chinanu Onuaku has 42 blocks off the bench and helps keep Louisville fresh up front. Sophomore guard Anton Gill was the unsung hero of Friday's win over N.C. State, going on a seven-point scoring surge when the game was in doubt in the second half. Those are the only two reserves who regularly help. Matt Costello was huge for MSU against Oklahoma, and Bryn Forbes did a good defensive job in 31 minutes, though he only hit one shot. If the Spartans can get more help from Marvin Clark Jr. and Alvin Ellis, that could pay off with fresher legs late in the game.

Edge: MSU

The Michigan State reserves weren't as productive in the win over Oklahoma, but Matt Costello has been solid throughout the postseason in the block and Bryn Forbes has produced timely scoring and improved defense. Marvin Clark and Alvin Ellis saw limited minutes against Oklahoma but both contributed with Clark grabbing the final rebound to put the game away. The Cardinals lack much depth and two players went the entire 40 minutes in the victory over N.C. State. Anton Gill played only 11 minutes, but he was 3-for-3 and scored seven points down the stretch the help the Cardinals secure the victory. Chinanu Anuaku is 6-10 and has started 26 games this season. Edge: Michigan State.

Also filling a vacancy and creating another one is Bradley, as they hired Brian Wardle away from Green Bay. Wardle went 95-65 in five seasons at Green Bay, reaching the NIT the past two seasons. He will replace Geno Ford, who was fired less than a week ago. Bradley is trying to regain relevance after a Sweet 16 appearance in 2006 was the peak of what became a steady decline.
