Well the Final Four is set for the NCAA Tournament. The field of 68 was announced on Sunday, March 15, and two weeks later just four teams – No. 1 Kentucky, No. 1 Wisconsin, No. 7 Michigan State and No. 1 Duke – remain.
It is just the fifth time in NCAA Tournament history that at least three No. 1 seeds reached the Final Four. The only time all four No. 1 seeds survived was in 2008. And this year is just the third-straight season one conference has had two teams in the Final Four as both Wisconsin and Michigan State come from the Big Ten.
The two games that will determine the national championship contenders will take place on Saturday, April 4. The first of those will be No. 1 Duke against an unexpected No. 7 Michigan State squad. And the second game will be a rematch from a year ago between No. 1 Kentucky – still unbeaten – and No. 1 Wisconsin.
