Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin (23) takes down a rebound ahead of North Carolina forward Ed Davis (32) in the first half of the men's NCAA tournament South Regional championship college basketball game in Memphis, Tenn., Sunday, March 29, 2009. Nearby are Oklahoma's Willie Warren (13) and Taylor Griffin (32) and North Carolina's Danny Green (14).
Blake Griffin might be the nation's best player. North Carolina brushed him aside with a total team effort. Ty Lawson scored 19 points and Danny Green added 18 to lead the top-seeded Tar Heels to a 72-60 win over Griffin and Oklahoma on Sunday in the South Regional final.
