The College Basketball Analyst covering the sport for both CBS and Westwood One Sports joined Kyle Bailey on Thursday’s edition of The Clubhouse as he previewed both Final Four games on Saturday and the hype surrounding Duke taking on North Carolina for the first time in NCAA Tournament history.

The conversation with Clark started with North Carolina and Hubert Davis making it to the Final Four in his first year as Clark said it’s an example of us not realizing how hard it is sometimes to take over a coaching job especially one with as much history as North Carolina’s as he said he fell victim to that as well but you could see as the year went on the adjustments the Heels made on both sides of the ball which is a large reason why they are playing this weekend.

When it came to who has the talent advantage in Saturday’s game between Duke and UNC Clark thinks that goes to the Blue Devils in large part because they have the best player left in the Tournament in Paolo Banchero but the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with the Heels, despite that Clark thinks the edge goes to Duke given how they have grown up since the loss to North Carolina.

Clark also touched on Villanova vs. Kansas as said Kansas to make timely 3’s along with another strong performance from Ochai Agbaji however Clark wouldn’t count out a Villanova win despite Justin Moore’s injury as if they can keep the pace slow it could favor the Wildcats.
