March Madness has delivered us some unbelievable moments we won’t forget for years to come. This year’s tournament has been filled with great surprises and runs that nobody would have expected.
This year’s tournament is the first time that no #1-3 seeds have made the Final Four! UConn is the highest seed at 4. Miami and San Diego State are 5 seeds, and FAU came in as a 9 seed. This year has, three of the four teams who will be making their first Final Four appearance.
If anyone told you prior to the tournament that this would be the last four teams, there would have been little to no confidence in the outcome. These teams have proved everyone wrong and have made this year’s tournament more special and unique than anything we have seen previously.
This is great for the sport of College Basketball and the March Madness tournament.
San Diego State
The Aztecs have been rolling since the Sweet Sixteen and have been playing exceptionally well. After beating 1-seed Alabama, the Aztecs went on to finish a close game against 6-seed Creighton to make their first appearance in the Final 4.
San Diego State will go up against the underdogs of the tournament, FAU, in a favorable matchup that could see them through to the Finals.
FAU has shocked the sports world with this amazing run. Nobody would have expected this team to even beat Memphis in the First Round. After big wins against Tennessee and Kansas State, this FAU team has looked sharp and hungry for more.
They should be able to put up a good fight against San Diego State, being that they have proven their past opponents wrong.
The Huskies have been taking control of all their matchups. They have won every game so far by at least 15 points and look to be the strongest team with the best odds to win it all. UCONN proved how dominant they are as a team by dismantling a strong Gonzaga team by 28 points.
Led by big man Adama Sanogo, his ability to help this team through March Madness could help his NBA Draft stock go up. UCONN will be put to the test against a very strong Miami side in what should be a fantastic match.
Miami has stolen the show in this tournament. They have gone through the toughest opponents and finally found their way to the Final Four! A strong stretch of big wins against Indiana, 1 seed Houston, and 2 seed Texas has proven how legit Miami looks at the moment!
The whole starting lineup has been working super well together and in their prospective roles. The Canes stretch of huge wins so far has declared this season as the best in their programs history for Basketball. I expect this Canes team to give UCONN a tough time and make this a game that comes down to the wire!
