No Duke. No North Carolina. No Kentucky. No Michigan State.
After a crazy couple of weeks of March Madness that saw a bevy of monumental upsets, both early in the tournament and late and that saw all four number one seeds eliminated, four teams remain standing that absolutely no one could have forseen. The only team left that has even sniffed a Final Four is UConn, which is actually a four time NCAA men’s hoops champion, having won the title on 1999, 2004, 2011, and 2014 and so could be considered a blue blood.
The other three teams that are headed to the Final Four this weekend at NRG Stadium in Houston are Florida Atlantic, University of Miami, and proudly representing the Mountain West conference, San Diego State. None of these teams has ever made the Final Four before in the history of their schools.
UConn has already been installed as the favorite to come away with the title after their convincing 30 point blowout of Gonzaga.
The Final Four schedule looks like this. On Saturday, April 1 at 3:00 PDT Florida Atlantic will battle San Diego State, with one of those teams advancing to it’s first ever appearance in the national championship game. Then at approximately 6pm PDT the UConn Huskies will play the University of Miami for the other title game berth.
The championship game will be played on Monday, April 3 at approximately 6pm PDT. The games will televised on CBS.
Good luck to all the teams and may the best team win!
