Behind seniors Jonathan Morse, Demetrius Miller, Tyler Cooper, and Derrick January, the Metro State Roadrunners are headed to the Division 2 Final Four.<!--more-->Metro State defeated the Franklin Pierce Ravens of Rindge, New Hampshire 78-65 in the NCAA Div. 2 Elite Eight to advance to the Final Four. The Roadrunners are two wins away from earning their third national basketball championship in school history, and behind star seniors Jonathan "J-Mo" Morse and Demetrius "Meetch" Miller, they are very capable of doing so.All they need to do, is get past the current No. 1 team in the nation in West Liberty in the Final Four on Saturday at 10 am MST to get to the big game. And that will be quite the task, as West Liberty beat Winona State handedly in the Elite Eight, winning 110-84.But if there's a team that can contend with West Liberty, it's the Roadrunners.Metro has been known to release the hounds in the full-court press defense that has been slowing down high-powered offenses all season long. But these West Liberty Hilltoppers are a whole different demon. The Hilltoppers are led by their star guards Alex Falk and Cedric Harris, who both scored 23 points in the quarterfinal game against Winona State.The match-up to watch will be just that, Metro State guards Demetrius Miller and Brandon Jefferson against West Liberty guards Alex Falk and Cedric Harris. Can BJ and Meetch contain the guys that wear the conductor caps in this high-powered offense that averages 103 PPG? It will be the ultimate test for the Roadrunners.West Liberty stands in the way of Metro State and the Championship Game in Atlanta. The Magic number is now 2.
