Fore! Anthony Kim's NCAA title favorites

Anthony Kim (left), who will defend his title at the Quail Hollow Championship April 27-May 3, is a basketball junkie. He likes to play and he’s an avid fan. During his visit to Charlotte this week, Kim took a moment to pick his five favorites to win the NCAA championship. It’s worth remembering that Kim attended Oklahoma for three years.

1. Oklahoma. I’m not saying they’re the most likely to win but I want them to win the most. I have to go with my heart there. (Blake Griffin, top) is a monster.

2. Louisville. They’re tough to beat. Terrence Williams is ridiculous and Clark is coming into his own.

3. Memphis. They’re just so athletic, it’s unbelievable. And if they have more people like (Maryland’s) Greivis Vasquez popping off, they seem pretty motivated.

4. North Carolina. I did win here so I’ll with North Carolina…if (Ty) Lawson’s healthy. He didn’t have a great game (against LSU). He made an impact but he didn’t have a great game.

5. Missouri. They’re my sleeper, not really a sleeper but their press is ridiculous. Marquette tried to press them and that didn’t really pan out even though the game was closer than I thought it would be.

OK, you tell us: Is Kim nuts? Who'd he leave off that you would include? Should he just stick to golf? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.

So scoring 21 points in the second half, basically taking over the game by himself, is not a good game, just making an impact? Stick to your golf game, Kim. You really don't know what you're talking about.

He will "what" with North Carolina?Did he intend to say "go" with North Carolina? Or did he intend to say "skip" North Carolina? Perhaps "pull against" North Carolina? That ONE missing word could solve this mystery.
